LSC207 Daffodils


Happy TGIF!!!

Thank you for all the well wishes for my daughters!!! Unfortunately both are still sick and hopefull will recover over the weekend...!!!

We are still completely off schedule and have turned the night into day - YIKES!!! Thank goodness the girls are on *Winter* break next week and we'll try to get back into the groove then!!!

I was stalking the LSC207 and I'm so happy to play along.....Judy has really put us to the test!!! I didn't have to think very long to figure out what I wanted to create....a card out of my comfort zone!!!

If you all have been following the Flourishes Design Team you already know about the Sneak Peek. If not - this is the third day of showing the newest Set's and all of them will be released tonight!!! Don't miss the Release Party over on SCS!!! Flourishes is featuring the *Sign of Spring* Set today!!! For more info and all the Samples please visit the Flourishes Blog .

I designed a similar card for the Timeless Tuesday Challenge the other day - you can view it right here. Like I said and if you know me.... this is usually not a card I would create - I like them clean, simple and fast....- LOL!!!

For this Limited Supply Challenge - we had to use at least *two* or more things we don't do so often or are a *stretch* for us.....Well - I used 4 layers and that's without the sentiment - LOL!!!! This is my second time using a *Recess Window* - still getting used to it. I also like buttons, but for some funny reason I don't use them that often - did I mention I have tons?!? This is definitely a card out of my comfy zone!!!

I used the new SAB Designer Paper *Delicate Dots*. The frame was created with the Bigz Top Note Die and in the center I used an Oval Nestie. The colors I used are -Bashful Blue, So Saffron, Kraft and Whisper White. The pretty Border Punch is from Martha Stewart. I inked the daffodil and the sentiment in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with Prisma Markers (Green Tea, Jasmine).

On the senitment I used the small and large Oval Punch plus I added some piercing right below it. At the end I added a Button (unknown source) and the DS Wild Wasabi Ribbon.

Hope you like it??? If you like stop by again tomorrow for the OCC Challenge!!!Have a wonderful weekend!!! ~TFL~
