Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Hey guys - guess what??? It's Tuesday again!!!

Time to play the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge!!!

Today Kimberly Crawford has challenged us to use some *Clear Cardstock* (Acetate) on our card/project!!! To see all the Samples and to find out how you can play along swing by the Flourishes Blog!!!

For my card today I used the Crystal Clear Cardstock from Flourishes. I really like it since it is much thicker than the M3 Acetate I used before - perfect for card making!!!

My flower image is from the Flourishes Sweet Peas Set. I colored it with Copic Markers - Pale Lilac V12 and Nile Green G07. Next I added some Sugar Plum Shimmerz. Please click on the second photo to see a close up!!!

After letting the Shimmerz dry for a minute I started tearing around the image. Next I layered it onto some White Mulberry Paper and frizzed out the edges . I wanted to add a bit more sparkle so I used a very thin painting brush and added some Candle Light Shimmerz to the edges of the Mulberry Paper. I adhered the image with some Snail Adhesive.

You will be able to see the Snail Adhesive on the inside - to cover it up I added some White and Pale Plum Cardstock. Next I dressed the card up with some large Silver Pearls (Michael's), Lavender Moon Satin Ribbon (PTI) and the Styled Silver Label Holder.

The sentiment is from the Flourishes - Many Sentiments Set and it was inked in Basic Black.

Of course I had to make a little treat box with it :). I used the new SU Matchbox Bigz XL Die from the Occasions Mini Catalog.

For the top part I used the Clear CS and for the bottom I used the Pale Plum. I filled it with four Hershey Nuggets - yummy!!! I dressed the box up with the same Ribbon and added some small Silver Pearls on each side!!! Voila!!!

Now go and dig out some of your Clear CS or Acetate and play along!!! Can't wait to see what you will create !!! Please use the keyword *FTTC12*!!!

Thank you for stopping by!!!
