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 (FTTC88

Another fun challenge at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday...This time it will be Silke Ledlow, who is hosting this week's challenge.  I love all her work!  Anyways, the rule for this week is to ink and distress the edges of the card entry to add dimension and texture.

Here's my take:

 I want an unusual "poinsettia's", so opted for brown, blue and copper color combo.
PAPER: Flair, DCWV and American Crafy
STAMPS: Flourishes (Poinsettia's & Boxwood; Winter Bouquet for Sentiments)
INKPADS: Memento Tuxedo Black, CTMH Indian Corn Blue, TH Distressed Inkpads Rusty Hinge
COLORING: Copic markers
TOOLS: Cuttlebug machine, Spellbinder dies (Fleur de Lis & Blossom), EK Paper shaper punch, PC paper trimmer, ATG and TH distressed tool
EMBELLISH: Glittered ribbon, Dress-Up Buttons (gold snowflake and fancy frame) and Basic Grey half pearls
