Gratitude Sketch

Welcome to the Timeless Tuesday challenge along with day 1 of Flourishes August new release. As a special treat today, the FTTC designers are being joined by some of the senior design team to show off a set that has been a favorite of some this past year but hasn't been available to the public until now! The stamp is called With Gratitude! Coneflower and Bell Flower -- two beauties perfect for sending a note of gratitude. This set was released as an exclusive set for FLIP members and is now availble to the public. Before you had to be a FLIP member to get your hands on it, but now, you can buy it! Illustrated beautifully by Marcella Hawley, this set measures 4 by 6" and offers not only 2 beautiful focal flowers but 6 sentiments and a script border. The stamp set is available right now as a pre-order. It’s a beauty!
On to today's challenge! All you need to do is use this sketch for your Timeless Tuesday creation...

We can’t wait to see your take on this fun filled sketch! Need a little inspiration? Just hop on over and see what these fellow designers whipped up using the new With Gratitude set and this sketch!

As you make the rounds in today’s Timeless Tuesday hop, you’ll notice that some of the designers are using a fresh picked 123 Creat Kit called Delightful!

These kits have everything you need to create color coordinated cards with paper, ribbons and embellishments – all in one kit! Travel HERE to see for yourself!My creation using With Gratitude is a rich and dark version today. I have in the past used lots of vibrant or fresh colors, so why not go with rich and dark this time. ;0) I do love how this turned out with just a bit of pearls for embelishment I let the flowers do all the beautiful work today!
