Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Can you believe it's already November - I can't?!?!? Hope you all had a wonderful weekend??? We had a good one......our girls had so much fun trick or treating....I'll share some photos of my girls soon!!!

Most importantly.....are you ready for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC40???

Today Kimberly Crawford is our host. She is challenging us to a *Limited Supply Challenge*!!! The Challenge is to combine a colored image, texture or textures, and any shades of neutrals we want.

You can pack on the layers and textures just make sure you include an image to color and use only Neutral Cardstock. Just so you know you can us any combination of White, Creams, Blacks, Browns, and Grays. So make your cards pop with texture and a beautifully colored image! We can't wait to see what you create!?!?!

Here is what I came up with.......



















I used the super cute Home Tweet Home Set. I thought it would make a darlin' *Fall* card!!!

The colors for my card are Black, Kraft and White.

I inked the images in Memento Black and colored it with Copic Markers. I *popped* up some leaves, the bird and the birdhouse.

Next I added some Angel Wings Shimmerz to the images. To finish the card off I added Black Felt Ribbon, some Silver Pearls and piercing around the main image!!!

Hope you like this idea?!?

Please make sure to stop by Betty, Cindy, Dee, Kimberly and Makiko's blog and see their take on this Challenge!!!!

Thank you for stopping by today!!! Have fun playing along!!!
