A Sneak Peek .... and a Challenge!

Hi everyone! I have a double dose of fun today. For starters, the design team and Friends of Flourishes team will be showing off a fun little set that will be released this week. AND, I also am also helping usher in this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

Want to see the first set that's been sneak peeked this week for  Flourishes' November Release?
Give the inside and outside of your cards a dash of pizazz with this fun new set from Becky Fleck! Inside and Out Just Because is the perfect little sentiment set for all occasion creations! There are so many mix and match sentiments packed on this 4" by 3" set! If you like what you see, you can pre-order this set today!

On to this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge! It's one that hopes to deliver a bit of inspiration! Just take a look at the photo below and make something that is inspired by the colors or objects you see! Check it out...

On to my creation! I decided to be inspired by the color dots at the top and decided to make my creation tones of brown - green browns, rose browns and tans. 

I started by stamping the Just Because portion of the set with Memento Toffee Crunch. Then, I took the I Care and stamped it using Rich Cocoa. I used Classic Ivory. From there, I figured out how large my panel would be above. On this, I stamped the scripted background in Toffee Crunch and the flowers in Rich Cocoa from the Sweet Nature set. Then... I grabbed my Copic Markers! I used E04,  E81 (from the New Browns set) and E84, and E87 and then blended with YR0000. 

Here's a peek at the flower! So subdued and almost "antiqued."

I edged with gold leaf and matted it on some brown card stock (one of the lightest shades from the CME Rich Browns Collection), added some gold cording and... ta da!

And that, my friends, is it! If you want to play along with this week's Timless Tuesday challenge, just click HERE for all the details! 

Like I mentioned, the design team is teaming up with the Timeless Tuesday gals so you have a lot of hopping today to see all the fun creations! And... you should know that one of the ladies below is the...

You don't know which lady is the Mystery Blogger, so be sure to leave comments on all of these fine ladies' blogs! Why? One of them will be drawing a name from the comments and the winner gets our new Inside & Out Just Because stamp set! Woo Hoo!!!  So, get hopping! 

I'll be back tomorrow with another sneak peek and this one will have you grabbing a glass of wine and heaving overseas! :-) Yes, that is your hint! See you back here then!
