Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #209


It's my last week as Guest Designer with the fantastic Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge team - where did the month of February go? 
This week Broni has given us the challenge  All that Glitters - to add some glitter and shine to your project! (FTTC209)!
You can find out more details on the Flourishes blog HERE. 
 
 
 I have to confess I'm not very good with glitter - it tends to appear in the strangest places for weeks after I use it - such as in lunchbox sandwiches, adorning soccer/football uniforms, and on the dogs eyelashes!  So I opted for some sheer glittery ribbon and for the shine I used Clear Gloss on the jar. 
I love the Flourishes set Garden Picks because I have a thing for jars and flower images and these are BEAUTIFUL! 
I popped up the flowers against a stitched and embossed bg and then added some flourishes in white.  I had a little heart button in my stash with flowers which look exactly like the ones in the image so it just had to go on there - don't you love it when that happens?
 
Supplies include:
Spellbinders Nestabilities Labels Four
Craft Concepts Christmas Vine embossing folder
My Favorite Things Framing Flourishes Die-namics
Sewing machine
Sheer glitter ribbon
Button
Tag Punch
Copics
Anita's Clear Gloss
 
Now I hope you have time to go check out what the Design team have come up with this week, I gaurantee you'll be dazzled with not only the glitter and shine, but the talent! 
Thanks again to the Flourishes TTC team for inviting me to join them this month and thank YOU for stopping by today!
