FTTC144– Flag, You’re It!



Hello and happy Tuesday everyone~

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge (FTTC144)!! Tammy is challenging us to use *flags* in your design! Whether it’s a flag image, or a sentiment flag, or pennants. Whatever you think represents a flag! What a fun challenge!

Please visit Flourishes Blog for more information about the challenge. Looking forward to seeing your creation!!



I have had Spellbinders Nested Pennants and Nested Lacey Pennants for a while and decided to use them for my challenge card. I used Enjoy the Ride for the image. It was stamped directly on the designer paper and colored with Copic markers. The word “Celebrate” placed wonderfully as a sentiment, don’t you think? I created the pennants with the same cardstock and designer paper collection with the card. Then I attached the buttons with vintage twine and placed on the card. To finish off, I embellished with the swirl pearls and clustered the pearls around the pennants.



The Copic Collections I used (B04, RV17, RV19, E27 and E 29 were not used)
