Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - my turn!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

As you all know it was a crazy weekend for me...but thank goodness I'm in a happier spirit today...!!! Thank you for praying for my family....I passed it on and it's deeply appreciated!!!

There is nothing better than some *stampin' therapy* when you have the blues - right??? Which leads me to today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC42!!!

Guess what...it's my time to host it!!! I'm so excited to bring you a Sketch that I like to use a lot and I'm really looking forward seeing what you all come up with!!!

The Sketch itself is pretty straight forward....

I took a more *traditional* approach on my card today.....





















I finally had a chance to ink up my beautiful Dove & Holly Set.

The colors I used are - Real Red, Handsome Hunter and White.

The image itself was inked in Memento Black and it was colored with several different new Copic Markers that are available at the Flourishes Store!!! For this particular card I used the Holly, Fuschia, Cool Neutrals and Warm Neutrals.

At last I bedazzled the image with some Glitter, added the Red Checker Ribbon, Button and the Silver Pearl.

Please make sure to stop by Betty, Cindy, Dee, Kimberly and Makiko's blog for their take on the Sketch!!!

Have fun playing...I'll be checking!!!
