  DahliasGraphic

We are also teaming up with Friends of Flourishes Team for this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC228)!!
Deborah is your hostess this week and she is challenging to use Acetate anywhere in your project or card . That's right, it's time to dust off those clear pieces of "paper" and create something fun and unique!


Here is my card using Dahlias set...

As you see, I used my acetate sheet for the scalloped lace square layer and the eyelet border. I hardly use the acetate sheets but they give the interesting look and texture to the creations. I stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black, colored the dahlias with Copic markers and fuss cut around the image to place on the corner of the sentiment mat. The rest of the card was designed with Classic White cardstock, Classic Black cardstock, CME Candy Pink cardstock and Carta Bella So Noted paper pad. To finish off, I embellished with dark rose pearls.











 AND...here's one way to win this gorgeous new stamp set for your collection...


One of the designer from both of our Flourishes Finest Design Team AND Friends of Flourishes Team is today's Mystery Blogger!

Take a moment and leave some love on all of our designers' blogs for your chance to win this beautiful Dahlias stamp set!
