Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC63

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I was hoping to tell you something about my Zumba class, but unfortunately they cancelled the class due to a banquet they had going on. I was so disappointed
 :( ...... sniff!!! There will be a late night class tonight and I guess I have to try that one...I'll keep you posted...if I survive it...LOL!!! !!!

Well, are you ready for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC63 !?!? Our host today is Cindy and she has created this fabulous Sketch for you to try!!! It's pretty straight forward.....you can turn the Sketch and modify the shapes to fit your size card, but in the end, it should still look like the sketch. Good Luck!!! We cannot wait to see what you do with it!



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



I combined my card with the April Dirty Dozen Challenge CT0410 -  Very Vintage Central Theme and the Inspiration Theme. I don't do *vintage* very often, because I suck at it.....but for some reason this fabulous brand spankin' new SPRING BOUQUET Set did it for me!!!

I inked the floral image in Memento Black and colored it with these Copic Marker Collections - Buttercup,  HollyLilac, Violet and Colorless Blender. The DP is from the KaiserCraft Lilac Avenue Collection. The edges and the White Lace Ribbon were distressed with the KaiserCraft Lilac Stampin' Spot. At last I bedazzled the floral image with Dazzling Diamond Glitter and added the Large Halfback Pearls.

Don't forget to stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's blog to see their take on this Sketch!!!

Looking forward seeing your cards!!!
