Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, TLC206 Be Mine....


Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

It's time for another fun *Timeless Tuesday Challenge*!!! I hope you all had fun playing with us last week??? Please make sure to stop by the Flourishes blog to find out the *who* the winner is from last weeks entry!!!

Are you ready to find out what's going on this week??? Well, let me tell you - the super talented Betty Wright is hosting this weeks TT Challenge. She is challenging us to use *BUTTONS* on our cards/project. How fun is that??? I have sooooo many buttons and I must admit I had a really hard time selecting which ones I should use...- LOL!!! Have you noticed these little embellishments are super trendy right now???

When I started making this card I was in a very happy mood, because the weather has turned around for a few days and it's in the 70's - wahhhoooo!!! I felt like happy Spring colors and ended up using the beautiful 6"x 6" *Euphoria* DP from BasicGrey (available at Flourishes) as well as the Certainly Celery, Pink Pirouette, Tempting Turquoise plus Whisper White CS.

My layout and idea for this card came from last weeks TLC206, I loved how the *Recessed Window* looked and thought I'd try it. I used the *Bigz Top Note* die and created an oval window in the center using an Oval Nestie. The image is from the Flourishes Set *I love Roses*.

I inked it in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored the Rose with the following Prisma and Copic Markers - Green Tea, Ballet Pink, Pink Rose and Putty. I softened the look with the Colorless Blender. I had to use my new Eyelet Border Punch on the bottom. The pink and turquoise buttons are from SU and the white one from an unknown source. I tied some Scrapbook Floss in the middle of the buttons and adhered them with Glue Dots.

The sentiment is from the same Set and it was also inked in Tuxedo Black and punched out with the Small Oval Punch. The TT CS was punched out with the Large Oval Punch. Once I adhered them together I pierced below the sentiment. Of course there were tons of Stampin Dimensionals used in the process - LOL!!!

I hope you get your neglected buttons out and join us for this fun Challenge!?! Please use the keyword *FTTC2* to show off your project on SCS!!!

Here is a direct link to all my team members - Becca Feeken, Betty Wright, Cindy Haffner, Dee Jackson and Kimberly Crawford.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by!!!
