Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC53!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

How was your weekend??? I'm happy to report our *Garage Sale* turned out awesome!!! We sold all our big items we wanted to get rid off...and the most fun part was..... meeting all these sweet people who showed up!!! There are some serious addicted shoppers out there - LOL!!!!

Anyhow - it is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC53!!! First of all I would like to *thank* all the super sweet stamper's that took the time to celebrate the Timeless Tuesday Anniversary with us!!! I loved each and every card you all have made for my *pink* Challenge...it was a real treat to check every one out!!!!

*Thank you* again to all the wonderful ladies that helped me show off my Challenge...you all did a fabulous job!!! I also want to thank Jan Marie and Julie Koerber for asking me to join this fabulous *Friends of Flourishes* Team almost a year ago....I'm so happy and honored to be part of this super talented & super sweet group of ladies!!!

Talking about the *FOF* ladies...we are happy to announce we have a new Team Member!!!
Please give a warm welcome to Barbara Anders!!!! We all are so thrilled to have her on the Team!!! You can read a little bit more about Barbara right HERE!!!

Barbara is also our Challenge Host today......she is challenging us to  create an *Easel* card - wahoooo!!! Never tried an *Easel* card before, no problem.....HERE  is a SCS Easel card & video tutorial which includes ingredients lists, measurements, and individual pictures. We would love to see what you create!?!

Here is my take on the card....




My idea to make this card came actually from this weeks Featured Stamper #157....which is no other then our fabulous Barbara!!! How cool is that...I know she is still on cloud nine and I'm so excited for her!!! I chose to case one of her newest creations....this fabo glamour card !!!

The changes I've made are.... different colors, Stamp Set and I changed the design to an *Easel* card :) !!!

For my card  I used the beautiful A Year in Flower Calendar Set 1. The sentiment is from the brand new Taglines Set.

My color inspiration came for last weeks Curtain Call Color Challenge #15. The flowers were inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Markers -  Crocus Collection, Lilac Collection and Holly Collection. I raised some of the flower petal up with Stampin' Dimesionals.

Please make sure to check out Betty, Barbara, Cindy, Dee and Maki's take on this Challenge!!!

This was my first take on an *Easel* card and I really like them...hope you'll try one too!?!  
 
Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!!!
