Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC48!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Did you all have a nice weekend??? We did...I took the girls for some ice skating fun and enjoyed the company of some friends!!! My kids don't go back to school until Thursday....so we are trying to enjoy the last few days together and trying really hard to get back onto a normal schedule :)  I finally had some time to clean my house yesterday...and prepared for my husbands birthday today!!! Happy Birthday my sweet hubby - love ya!!!

Moving on to today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC48 ......are you ready to play along with us??? Maki is our host and she is challenging us to some awesome colors - Black, Yellow and one extra color of your choice !!!! Sounds awesome doesn't it???

Here is my take on it.......


I used the beautiful A Year in Flowers Calendar Set 3. For the sentiment I used the Many Sentiments Set. The layout is from this VLVJan{10}01 Sketch.

The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Markers - Daffodil, Holly and Warm Neutrals Collection. Once I was done coloring I added some Glitter. The So Saffron panel was dry embossed with the Swiss Dot Cuttlebug Folder. I also added some piercing along the right side!!!

Please check all the fabulous sample cards from the team - Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki.

Have a fun playing along!!!

This is gorgeous, Silke :D Love the black and saffron together and the touch of green is perfect. Great colouring of the flowers. I just won these flower sets on Christine's blog and can't wait to use them. May have to case a few of yours to get me going LOL! Love the Swiss Dots panel (mind you I do have an extreme addiction to it LOL) and the piercing on the other side finishes things off fabulously. Happy Birthday to hubby - I'm a January baby too :D
