Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC60

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I'm so thrilled that we are having gorgeous weather here this week....my kiddos are on spring break and we'll be heading to the beach tomorrow....I know crazy huh?!? We love to hang out at the beach...just kickin' back playing ball, frisbee and collecting sea shells :) !!! Life is good...LOL!!!

Well, are you ready for the next Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC60 ???  I know you will love this one!!! Our Guest Designer, my sweet and fabulous friend Denise Marzec is hosting today and she has an Inspiration Challenge  waiting for us!!! Please use any of the three inspiration photos that can be found over at the FTTC Blog. Feel free to make a card for each ic-photo!!!  We can't wait to see which one you will choose...please make sure to tell us which photo inspired you!!!

I chose this beautiful tray image......not only because I love the checker designs, but it gave me a reason to ink up one of my favorite Flourishes Sets called Strawberries.


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



I inked the image with Memento Black and colored it with these Copic Marker Collections  - Buttercup, Sweet PeaPoppy, Holly and Colorless Blender. The sentiment is from the Many Sentiments Set. The Sketch is from my Collection and you can see it right HERE. The Real Red CS was scored in 1/4" intervals.

The border was punched with the MS Flower Punch and I added some Red Hero Arts Gemstones in the center. At last I added the Red Checker Ribbon.

Please stop by Barbara Anders, Betty Wright, Cindy Haffner, Dee Jackson, Denise Marzec and Makiko Jones to see their take on the inspiration photos.

Beautiful card Silke. This is one of my favorite sets too! I tell you I need to buy it one day. Your card as always is just perfect. I like the red gemstones, I found that I really like the Jolee's Swarovski Elements to add.

Have a wonderful day!
