Timeless Tuesday ~ It's Kraft Time!

Howdy all!  Happy Tuesday!  Welcome to the Flourishes' Timeless Tuesday challenge!

This week's challenge comes from the lovely and creatively charged, Cindy Haffner!  For this week's challenge, FTTC182, Cindy has challenged us to create using kraft cardstock!  A wonderful neutral for cards - it goes with every colour.  For further challenge details, see HERE on the Flourishes blog for details.

Here is my creation for this week...

Live. Laugh. Love.

For my card creation, I used the AMAZING (not kidding!!) August 123 Create Kit from Flourishes!  It is packed with delicious patterned papers by Authentique, 4 stunning coordinating ribbons, a glorious amount of beautiful buttons and some glitzy sparkle... some adhesive bling!  This is a MUST HAVE ladies!

Here is a close up of my focal detail.  I used the new August release, Garden Picks, stamp set.  I stamped it using Rich Cocoa ink from Memento and then outlined it with Copic E33 from the Copic Copper Collection.  My sweet sentiment is from the Tiny Flowers and Tags collection.

Take a peek at what my fellow Timeless Tuesday designers have created for today…
