FTTC39 Cherish Flourishes

Hello and welcome to the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC39) - today I am the Guest Hostess!!! I am absolutely THRILLED to be asked and I am challenging you to use Border Punches or Borderabilities! You decide if you want to use just one border, different patterns, or layer several for a fanciful look.

I LOVE my border punches and I hope you do too!!! To play go to the Flourishes Newsletter Blog and link your creation to Mr Linky - I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with!!!! :)

Today I chose to use my Gerber Daisies stamp set. I love Daisies - they were even the flowers I had at my wedding - and I can't stop using this beautiful set!! I started with a base of deep purple bazzill layered with Very Vanilla punched on both sides with the EK Success Fleur de Lis Border Punch. In the middle I added more purple bazzill and topped it with some Basic Grey Wisteria DP. The main panel is the Flourishes Gerber Daisies that have been stamped and coloured with markers and a blender pen, cut out and popped up on foam tape. Underneath the daisies is an oval vanilla layer embossed with the Script EF and then a purple layer cut with Label 5 Nestabilities. The sentiment is from the same stamp set, stamped in cocoa and cut with the Ribbon Tags Trio die and attached with 1/2" Ivory satin ribbon. To finish I added some Blush Kaisercraft Pearls to the corners of the Label 5 Panel.

Check and see what gorgeous creations the Flourishes Team have made!!!
