Friends of Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Its Timeless Tuesday! Today I am hosting the challenge and gave the Friends of Flourishes a sketch to use. Feel free to flip, bend, and change the sketch to inspire you. We would love if you would play along! Check out all the challenge details at the Flourishes Newsletter.
See how the ladies all used the sketch:
Becca Feeken
Betty Wright
Cindy Haffner
Dee Jackson
Silke Ledlow

For my card, I used the gorgeous Lilac set of stamps. Lilac has the obvious and these gorgeous magnolias and branches. I stamped the branch on the oval along with the flowers. I then stamped extra flowers on another piece of cardstock. I love foam-mounting parts of images, especially flowers.
The oval was colored in with my BG10 Copic marker and then washed out with the Colorless Blender. The sentiment is from Signs of Spring and the line and flourish above and below the oval is from Many Sentiments.
thanks for stopping by!

Supplies:
Stamps-Flourishes (Lilac, Signs of Spring, Many Sentiments)
Patterned paper-My Mind's Eye, Crate Paper, Basic Grey
Cardstock-Papertrey Ink (Vintage Cream)
Ink-Memento (Tuxedo Black)
Tools-Spellbinders Die Templates (Classic Ovals Large, Classic Scalloped Ovals Large), Butterfly Punch (Martha Stewart), Corner Rounder (Marvy Uchida) Copics BG10, V04, V06, O, E55, E57
