Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC58!!!

Howdy everyone!!!

I'm enjoying my time here in Lubbock, TX. I've been busy looking at houses, enjoying my friends family and of course doing some shopping. I'll be looking at more houses today and I like that there is so much to see and to chose from. I can't wait to move here permantly!!!

I'm so thrilled, because today is my turn to host the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC58!!! I thought I'd give you a Sketch to play with :) ....actually, I designed two sketches. Are you are feeling the round or the square??? You could be feeling a bit of both and play twice!!! As far as sketches go, you can turn them increase or decrease the sizes a bit, but in the end, it should still look like the sketch. We would love to see what you create with us this week!!!
























Here is my card and I used Sketch II........



I used the gorgeous new Lily of Hope Set. If you missed the new Release this past Friday, please make sure to check it out right HERE!!!

The flowers and sentiment were inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Marker Collection - Daffodil & Meadow plus the Colorless Blender.

The DP is from the So Saffron Patterns Collection. On the left center I added some embossing with the QuicKutz Stripes Labels Embossing Folder and seperated it with a Black Satin Ribbon. Each panel was raised with Stampin' Dimensionals. I distressed the circle layers and finish it off by adding some Dazzling Diamond Glitter, some piercing on the outerside plus I added the Black Pearls to the sentiment.

Please stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's blog to see their choice of Sketch!!!

Have a wonderful day and I'll can't wait to see what Sketch you chose!!!

Wow Wow Wowwwww, I'm seriously in LOVE with this card. It's AWESOME! I love the way you distressed the edges of the one circle panel...and is that some glitter I see on it? Beautiful dimension on the large lillies and I like the trio of black brads above the sentiment.
