Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC54!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Did you all have a wonderful Valentine's Day??? We sure did...we were again total slackers..!!! We enjoyed watching the Winter Olympics!!! We are always blown away by all these amazing athletes!!!  On Saturday afternoon our middle daughter Rebecca played in the *Championship* game for her age group, but unfortunately they lost by 3 points...!!! It was a really good game...and we are extremely proud for making second place!!!  Of course we had to celebrate with some yummy ice cream - LOL!!!

Okay...moving on to today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC54!!! Dee Jackson is our host and she is challenging us to an "All About Me" theme. Use what you love and what makes you happy!! Use your favorite colors, stamps, layout, and embellishments! Whatever ROCKS your world! We would love to see what you create!!!

Did I ever mention that my main reason getting into stampin' was to create personalized presents...treat bags, boxes etc.??? Well over the last few months I've been trying to get back to my original idea...!!! I have bought plenty of dies and templates to create my projects!!! A few other things that make me happy are - a great Stamp Set, the color purple, my fav Silver Pearls (hopelessly addicted - LOL) and a good Sketch!!!

Here is my take on the challenge....




I used the beautiful newly released From the Garden Set. My idea for this Set came from this weeks CAS54 - Wishing for Spring!!! The Sketch is from last weeks Mojo125....I tweaked it a little bit. I just saw that my card also fits this weeks CC258 - Perfect Plum, Pale Plum and Soft Suede.

The flower images and sentiments were inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Marker Collections - LilacMeadow plus YG91.

For my little gift box I used the Fancy Favor Sizzix Bigz Die. I decorated it with the same Lilac Avenue DP and the same Plum Pudding Ribbon as the card. On the sides I punched holes and attached some Large Silver Eyelets to hold the Ribbon better. For the inside I added some purple Gift Tissue and some packages of  Flower Seeds...voila!!!

Please make sure to stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's blog to see their take on the Challenge!!!

Have a wonderful day and thank you for stopping by!!!

LOL! You're not the only one "hopelessly addicted" ... but even the stash you sent to me is hardly touched ... because I am so "possessive" of my silver pearls. I don't have easy access to more ... so I tend to be very "ikey" when using them. It has to be something VERY SPECIAL for my silver pearls to be used! How ridiculous is that!!! I should just use and enjoy! One day I will get some Copics ... your colouring is so talented. TFS Silke! Hugs, Andrea xx
