Stamptoberfest Flourishes Challenge


I am having such a great time making cards today. Actually, I've only made one card, today. LOL! Time just got away from me. With "time" in mind, I used that as my theme for this Flourishes challenge by my friend Anne. Basically, we have to use two types of flourishes on the card. One of the flourishes has to be stamped. We can use the same flourish stamp if we want to, but one color has to be a different color. I decided to stamp one of my flourishes (Stampin Up) and then take some die-cuts (Quickutz) out of gold cardstock for my second set of flourishes. The large "face" image is by A Stamp In the Hand. The time pieces and gears are by Stampin Up. I colored most of my cardstock with alcohol inks. Finished off the card with bronze letters and decorative brads.
