***I have TWO posts today ~ if you are looking for my Pink Paislee Hot Hues Color Inspiration October post ~ please click HERE or continue to scroll up ~ thank you :)***

Hi there dear blogging friends! It's Tuesday so that means it's time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge! This week, Makiko is our Hostess and she is challenging us all to focus on TREES AND/OR LEAVES NO FLOWERS! So all you have to do to play along is use a tree/leave image(s) as your focal point. 
I immediately thought of the beautiful silhouette image of the gorgeous Christmas tree from the A Season of Celebrations set!
To create this quite CAS card, I stamped the image using VersaMark ink then heat embossed using fine white embossing powder. LOVE the way that image seems to come alive! The  A Season of Celebrations set is full of so many images that may be easily mixed and matched and if being a colorist isn't your claim to fame then this set is PERFECT for you! You don't even have to take the extra step of heat embossing, all you have to do is ink up one of the silhouette images with your favorite color of ink. Doesn't get much easier than that!
Thanks so much for visiting! For some wonderful inspiration, please be sure to see what the rest of the DT has created: TammyHeatherSilkeMakikoCindyBeateMona (that's me), Rosemary Dennis (October Guest Designer) and visit the Flourishes site for COMPLETE details on how to join in on the fun!


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes A Season of Celebrations
Dies: Spellbinders Classic Triple Scallop Edgeabilities
Patterned Paper: Pink Paislee
