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 - Non Traditional Holiday Colors

I must be really crafting deprived person since I was making cards like crazy while doing my chores over the weekend.  I wasn't really sure how to take this challenge since red and green are my fave Christmas colors. After thinking I decided to go for purple, aqua green and magenta.  Reminds me of our Christmas lights, which was in storage somewhere in TX...

Anyways, here's my entry for the challenge. I should say that it took alot of effort to color such small image.  Its really been awhile since I last used my copics.  I guess I have to keep on practicing to get use to it again.

Rules: No red and green.
MATERIALS:
PAPER: Georgia Pacific, Neenah and Stampin' Up {cardstock} Carta Bella and American Craft {patterned paper)
STAMPS: Flourishes {Petals and Peace and Dear Santa}
MARKERS: Copic and Spectrum Noir
INK: Stampin' Up! {Melon Mambo}
TOOLS: Cuttlebug, Impression Obsession dies {pine branch and snowflakes}, Ranger glossy inkssential, Scotch ATG, Fiskars paper trimmer and E-6000
EMBELLISHMENT: Wilton {doily}, MAMBI bling and Doodlebug baker's twine

Hope you like it!

Next time, I will try to diecut Flourishes image using Silhouette Cameo.  Now, that's another thing I'm gonna have to try soon... Wish me luck!
