*** I have two posts today, if you are looking for my Pink Paislee sneak peeks Day #2, please click HERE :) Thank you! ***

Hi there! It's time for an all new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge. Cindy is our wonderful hostess and she is challenging us all to create a Center Step Card. If you are like me and need a tutorial, there is a fab one on SCS ~ click HERE.
I made this Thank You card for my sweet sister Tina who will be taking care of my dear furry four legged friends, Gretchen and Griffin while I am away. I must admit, I was a bit intimidated to give the Center Step Card a try but once I got started, it all fell in line.
I took a break from color and went quite neutral with this one. I made a cluster of rolled roses and stamped the Thanks a bunch sentiment from Flourishes Zinnias. Lots of dimension, but it will be hand delivered with love :)
For sketch inspiration, I played along with the current Deconstructed Sketch challenge:
Thanks so much for visiting! Hope you are able to join along! Please be sure to visit the Flourishes blog for COMPLETE challenge details and for some wonderful inspiration visit the entire DT: TammyHeatherSilkeMakikoCindyBeateMona (that's me), Cheryl Lea (January Guest Designer).


Supplies Used:
Stamps: Flourishes Zinnias
Patterned Paper:, My Mind's Eye
Dies:Spellbinders Eyelet Squares, My Favorite Things, Sizzix Vagabond
