Hi everybody! Hope you had an awesome weekend! I just wanted to share this card I made this afternoon for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge. You can find out the details here. I used my new Bees and Blooms stamp set from Flourishes. It has an Asian feel to me so I paired it with some Authentique paper and I really like how it turned out! Yep...I broke out the good ol' gold leafing pen again....I am still in love with this pen....lol! Anyways, I kept everything pretty simple with straight lines. I scored and masked the image panel so it would be framed several times and to let those gorgeous stippled blossoms shine. I did a little stitching around the largest panel and added some gold photo corners to finish it off. This is really outside my norm, theme wise, but I have been trying to push my boundaries a bit. Hope everyone has a great week and thanks for looking!

Girlfriend.....mercy! Those boundaries may be pushed, but in a most beautiful way! I *love* red, and your patterns are gorgeous. Lovin' that gold leaf pen right along with you, and the stitching as well. Your image is divine, and the words just make it. Love your work! And you too!
p.s. the gold photo corners are genius!
