With Gratitude


Today my post is for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday. The challenge is to stamp your main image off the page. It can be a really great look. Since my time has been crunched by work and rebuilding my craft room, I took my inspiration from a Flourishes 10 Minute Creation. I used the idea and changed it up. The first time I saw this creation by Barbara, I knew it was a look I would like to use. It just felt so complete and elegant.
For my creation I used the With Gratitude set. I used a soft pink for the text which you can see a bit better above and a lot better in person. I stamped my image in Memento Black and used my copics to add color to the Cone Flower image. I added some ruffled ribbon to match the color of my mat a heart shaped wooded button and some jute twine. It's sorta simple but I really enjoyed making it.
Hugs to you all and hope to be back soon, I have about a 40 minutes so maybe I can cook up an ACT.
