Tuesday Throwdown Sponsored by Flourishes!

Oh, how sad.....this is my last post as Guest Designer for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge blog. These past four weeks have gone by super fast and I had a lot of fun! This week's challenge theme is 3D and our sponsor is......Flourishes! The winner will receive a stamp set from Flourishes...how cool is that? My sample this week features the awesome "Spring Bouquet" stamp set. This set comes with the gorgeous bouquet image plus ten sentiments!!! Check out the entire set here!

Card details:
The bouquet image was stamped four times, colored, cut out, and layers popped up with foam tape for dimension. "Irridescent Gold" Glimmer Mist and Lace Stickles added some shimmer and sparkle. The designer paper is Basic Grey "Wisteria", the Satin Ribbon is by May Arts, the sentiment panel is a Spellbinders Labels Four panel cut in half, and the Pearls are by Zva Creative.

Here is a close up view of the four layers of the bouquet.

I have also used the following challenges in the making of this card:
Gloria's awesome Sketch Tuesday Challenge at Christian Paper Crafts;
Stamptacular Sunday: S.O.S.= Someone Special....I will be giving this card to my mom for Mother's day;
All Sorts: Inspired By Nature;
Charisma Cardz: Spring Has Sprung;
Dutch Dare: Sparkle, glitter, bling ( I used all three!);
Paper Play: Add Shine (Glimmer Mist, Stickles, pearls, and satin!);
Creative Cottage: Fabulous Florals;
Truly Scrumptious: Swirls and Pearls;
Incy Wincy: Punches or Dies;
Lexi's Creations: Flowers.

Thanks so much for stopping by! Stay tuned later this morning for the Christian Paper Crafts February Blog Hop......you too can play along.....check out the details HERE! Hope to see you there! God bless!!
