Hi all!  Look at who gets to guest design for Flourishes in October?!!  Yup - ME!!!  I'm so thrilled and honored that they asked me to join this extremely talented group of designers!!!  Ok, now on to the fun stuff...

We have something extra special for this Timeless Tuesday Challenge. If you play along, not only will you get a chance to win our weekly prize drawing, you might get a chance to be one of our Flourishes' Guest Designers for December! HOORAY! And, there will not be just ONE winner. We will actually be choosing FOUR Guest Designers for December!!! Hip hip hooray!!!

The Friends of Flourishes and the Senior Design Team will be voting on their TOP THREE favorite projects once all the entries are in on Monday evening. The designers of those top three projects will be offered three of the four guest designer slots. Then, starting Tuesday October 8th, YOU will get a chance to vote for our PEOPLE'S CHOICE award by voting for your favorite creation! Stay tuned because next Tuesday, we'll share all the details of how you can cast your vote to help with our Guest Designer line up for December.

FTTC240 Paper Piecing          

For my card, I used the set Tulips for Friends.  I paper pieced the pitcher and carefully cut around the leaves for a realistic look.  Everything else was colored with copics.  The sketch is from the MFT Blueprints 3.  A button with thread and a trio of brads add the finishing details.

Detail shot...

Angel, this is so pretty! I love the paper pieced pitcher, and your coloring and fussy cutting on the flowers is gorgeous! It looks very 3D. Nice layout, too.
