When I stand before God at the end of my life, I would hope that I would not have a single bit of talent left and could say, "I used everything you gave me, Lord." I am a believer that God created each one of us with a unique talent, therefore, use it well to serve Him.

Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC87)

Since I finally have the guts now to share my cards and projects on different challenges online, said to myself, " I might as well join Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge".  I am a big fan of Flourishes stamps and in my opinion, I think they have the best "flower image" stamps in the industry. So for my first attempt, I used "Winter Bouquet" for my card image.  I'm quite pleased with the result and  I think I would consider it as one of my best coloring...

The rule for this week challenge is to follow the sketch designed and provided by  Cindy Haffner.  We are allowed to turn and modify the shapes to fit the size card, but in the end, it should still look like the sketch provided.
