FTTC186 "A Pinterest Christmas"

Hi everyone.  Amanda has a really fun challenge for us this week on the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday blog.....find a Christmas photo on Pinterest as inspiration for your card/project.

I found this photo here on Pinterest...


...and here's what I came up with (focusing on the poinsettia theme and the square design with green edging around the square)...


I used a brand new set from Flourishes; it's called Poinsettia and Pine, and it's releasing this week! The poinsettia image was stamped onto Classic Ivory in Memento Tuxedo Black ink, colored with Copic markers, cut out with scissors, and popped up on foam tape.  The papers, green trim, green rhinestones, and kraft flag pin are all part of September's 1-2-3 Kit, which is also releasing this week at Flourishes.

Check out what the rest of the Timeless Tuesday girls have created for you this week...

Allison   ***   Amanda   ***   Broni
Cindy   ***   Heather   ***   Maki
and our September Guest Designer, Linda Lucas!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!
