Hello! It's time for a brand spankin' new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge! In case you missed the post on the Flourishes blog, there are lots of changes going on! click HERE for complete details. Included with those changes are as follows: we are saying farewell to both Silke and Beate and we are welcoming both Denise Marzec and Allison Cope!

This week, Silke is our lovely hostess and she is challenging us to create using our *FAVORITES* ~ Use your favorite Spellbinder Die with your favorite Flourishes Stamp Set and add your favorite embellishments!!! I took it one step further and used some of my favorite Pink Paislee patterned paper from the London Market collection.
This challenge was REALLY tough for me because Flourishes has sooooo many awesome stamp sets, to narrow it down to one is nearly impossible! I wanted to create a mixed media canvas so I opted to use a few of my favorite sentiments from the Flourishes Pears stamp set (one of my faves).
I stamped the "Never Lose..." sentiment on a piece of Flourishes Classic Ivory card stock, cut using a die from Spellbinders Grommet Tags (one of my faves)
I enjoy creating my own flowers so I pulled out a Spellbinders Bitty Blossom die (another of my faves) and did just that!
I used a bird cage and bird die from the Spellbinders Bird Sanctuary set (another fave) to create a few embellishments. It is hanging from a branch that was cut using a die from Spellbinders Mix'd Media Elements (yep, another fave :)
I hope you ink up your stamps, especially ones from Flourishes and join in the fun! Please be sure to visit the Flourishes blog for complete details and for some fabulous inspiration visit our June Guest Designer: Alice Wertz and the entire DT: Heather, Silke, Makiko, Cindy, Beate, Amanda, Denise and Allison!post signature

I only have two Flourishes stamp sets but your project made my musthave list a bit longer:). Mixed media always makes me think of bright and bold colors but I am in LOVE with this soft color palette.
The girls' dress, the bird and birdcage and the sentiment are my favorite elements of this handmade gem:)
