Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, CC206 Live Your Dream...


Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Are you ready for another *Flourishes Timeless Tuesday* Challenge!!! This week the wonderful Dee Jackson has challenged us to use *flowers* on our cards!!! YEAHHHH - I love flowers on my cards....!!! For all the details and Samples stop by the Flourishes Blog!!!

For my card I used a combo....the brand new released Flourishes Set *Sign of Spring* image as well as some flower embellishments (Fancy Pants, Making Memories). I added some small buttons in the center of the flowers and tied them with some Scrapper's Floss (Karen Foster).

The layout came from Jen's SFYTT Sketch. I used the following colors - White, Kraft and Riding Hood Red CS. The sentiment and basket image were inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic and Prisma Markers - Go7, R08, B35, W-5 plus PM-132. The little Chickie's were inked in Marigold Morning and also colored with the Prisma Marker - Jasmine PM-132. Aren't they toooooo cute??? I raised the Chickie's, flowers and panels with Stampin Dimensionals plus I added some piercing underneath the main image.

Hope you will get out your flowers stamps, embellishment etc. and play along??? Don't forget to use the keyword *FTTC3* when you upload to the SCS gallery!!!

For more inspiration stop by my Flourishes Friends - Becca Feeken, Betty Wright, Cindy Haffner and Dee Jackson.

*****************************************

Finally - here is my card for the CC206 - sorry you had to wait for this post!!!


I don't know about you, but I had a heck of a time to use this Color Combo - Rose Red, More Mustard and Kiwi Kiss (Old Olive optional). I had to try several different Sets, but finally settled for this wonderful *Live Your Dream* Set.

I really tried to minimize the More Mustard....I didn't think it's a good match at all, but that's why it called a challenge right?!? I used more Rose Red and Old Olive and accessorized the card with small More Mustard butterflies from the Martha Stewart Butterfly Punch.

The image was colored with Rose Red and Old Olive Markers. I dressed the card up with some Silver Pearls (Michaels) and scored on the bottom of the card. The sentiment is from the *Fresh Cuts* Set and I inked it Basic Black. The circles were punched out with the 1" and 1 1/4" SU Circle Punch.

Thank you for being so patient and for stopping by!!! Have a great day!!!
