Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Happy Tuesday guys!!!

Hope you had a wonderful weekend??? We did something fun on Saturday...the girls were invited to a birthday party at a *Pottery Store*. While they crafted their little pottery items...I had a chance to make/design my own *Jewelry* out of specialty glass and clear glass - I designed a ring and some earrings!!! Oh - I can't wait to share it with you this week....I should be able to pick my new creations up on Wednesday - wahooooo!!!

Other than that I was working on some cards......and of course I'm ready to show off my card for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge -FTTC35 today!!!

Since it's the last Tuesday of the month we have a Guest Designer for you. Please welcome Francie Gumprecht (aka *Francie G* on SCS)!!! Welcome Francie and thank you for hosting todays FTTC!!!

Francie is challenging us to *Extend our creations outside the frame*. Whether your want to make a dimensional piece or use subtle cut lines, the look is to go beyond the frame you choose for your card. We can't wait to see what you create!?!?

Here is my take on it.....




















I used the yummy Strawberries Set.

The image was colored with Copic Marker and Prisma Markers. After coloring I added some Royal Red & Olive Green Shimmerz to the leaves and strawberries.

The frame was created with the Bigz Top Note and the Largest Oval Spellbinder Die. I raised some of the leaves and flowers up with Stampin' Dimensionals to create the *outside of the frame* look.

At last I decorated the card with some Silver Pearls and the Red Gingham Ribbon. The sentiment was inked in Basic Black and I pierced right below it.

Hope we have inspired you to play along?!?

Please stop by Betty, Cindy, Dee and Kimberly's blog for close ups on their cards!!!
