Flourishes Timeless Tuesday 100th Challenge Blog HOP!

Photobucket

Ok, it's no secret that I LOVE me some Flourishes stamps... I adore their uniqueness, the incredible detail of the images, and lovely sentiments that accompany them. Therefore it's also no wonder that I jumped right at the opportunity to partake in this event... WOOHOO happy 100th Challenge Anniversary, Flourishes!!
(if you're new to the event, and you'd like to participate in the Blog Hop, read all about it HERE on the Flourishes blog. There are some yummy prizes!)

Supplies: cardstock: Stampin' Up! (Melon Mambo, Early Espresso, ExpressIt Blending Cardstock); paper: Bella!, October Afternoon, Bo Bunny; stamps: Flourishes (Humming Along, Taglines); ink: Memento (Tuxedo Black); Copic markers; lace trim; grosgrain ribbon: Sullivans; button; cotton twine; sewing machine

The challenge is all about favourites, so here are mine... Firstly, I'm a sucker for beautiful, naturalistic flower/nature stamps, so here's one. Secondly, I'm crazy for pretty papers and the colour aqua. Lastly, I love colouring images, sewing on cards, using lace and ribbon, ribbon, RIBBON! So there ya' go, my card is oozing with my favourites :)

I used the VLVJan2011 Week 3 sketch, and the colours of CTD124:

It's a special challenge over at The Color Throwdown, as we're asked to send our cards to Katie Renz, a fellow blogger & fabulous stamper, who recently was diagnosed with stage 4 gastric cancer. Her story touched me deeply, and I decided to send mine to her. I hope you will take part in this wonderful drive too! I believe that with every card received, we're 'injecting' Katie with extra happiness & strength to deal with the illness.

One more thing before I leave you to it... I'd like to remind you that I'm now offering my cards for sale! You can read all about it here :)
Thanks and happy hopping!
