Country Time Burlap Christmas - Timeless Tuesday 242

Welcome everyone to another Timeless Tuesday Challenge!

I am this weeks hostess and I have a fun and trendy challenge.  Something that you see everywhere you go. So what is this trendy challenge I speak of? Here it is:

I really do love the look of both materials and find myself admiring such items made with it, but don't create with much of it.  Either material gives a great rustic feel and I am drawn to such.  Here is my card I created using Burlap and just had to use Country time Christmas as my main image.  Perfect for this challenge!

I used some old patterned papers that I had called Wanted by Cosmo Cricket for my main panels.  I then used Flourishes Perfectly Pierced Classic Frames die set to cut out the image panel using Flourishes Classic Cardstock in Ivory.  I then stamped the image using Memento ink in Espresso Truffle before coloring it in with Copics. I sponged around the edges using Distress inks in both Antique Linen and Tea Dye before adhering it to a piece of burlap circle I cut out using my largest circle nestie. The banner flags are a series of different patterned paper scraps and more burlap and I finished it off using some Jute twine ribbon.  The sentiment was stamped using Memento Rhubarb Stalk and also sponged using the same Distressed inks. 
Remember, you don’t have to use Flourishes stamps to participate in the Timeless Tuesday Challenge, but if you do, you get two ballots toward the weekly prize! And, inspiration is just a click away, on the DT’s blogs!
