Today’s Timeless Tuesday challenge hostess is Silke. She created a great sketch for us. For my sample I pulled out the Hyacinth Hello stamp set. I hadn’t used the image with the flower in the vase yet and thought it was perfect for this time of the year (with a bit of wishful thinking…).

The image was stamped in Tuxedo Black Memento Ink on Neenah Solar White cardstock. It was colored with Copic Markers ( Petals: Rooo, R00, R01, R02, T2, T3    Leaves: G20, YG01, G21, YG63    Bulb: E30, E31, E33   Water: B41, B0000) and cut out. A piece of Pink Paislee Butterfly Garden paper was cut and embossed with a Standard Circle Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and the circle was stitched to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the largest Tear Drop Circle Nestabilities die.

Another piece of Pink Paislee paper was cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Square Nestabilities die. The edges were sanded and adhered to a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the second smallest Grand Scallop Square Nestabilities die.  The edges of two 1 3/4″ x 4″ strips of green patterned paper of the same paper pack were sanded, then stitched, then adhered to  the square layers vertically. Two more strips were cut, sanded and stitched and adhered over the layers horizontally.

Organdy Ribbon was tied through the Tear Drop pieces before the image layers were adhered to the card base with dimensionals. A sentiment from the Hyacinth Hello in Tuxedo Black ink on a piece of white cardstock, cut and embossed with the retired 5 in 1 Tag die. The inner part of the tag was colored with Copic Markers (R000, R00, R01, R02) and tiny Stardust Stickles dots were added. The tag was tied to the bow with embroidery thread. The same thread tied an October Afternoon button over the bow.

More Stardust Stickles was added to the center of the flower petals. Parts of a Finesse Rhinestone Swirl were adhered to the top left and button right corners and additional Rhinestones on the upper left hand side finish off the card.
