Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC64

Happy Tuesday!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge - FTTC64 !!! It is the end of the month so we have a challenge hostess! This week Karen Wallace is our host! Karen is challenging us to create a *VINTAGE STYLED* card/project!!!!

Everyone has their own take on *vintage*, so without giving you any direction we want you to create a card that defines your own vintage style!!! We would love to see what you create!!!

Here is my idea.....



I couldn't help myself, but to use the super gorgeous Spring Bouquet Set again!!! First I inked the floral image with Melon Mambo onto the Melon Mambo DP. Next I distressed the edges and added the White Lace Ribbon.

The bouquet image was inked with Memento Black and colored various Copic Markers that can be found at the Flourishes Store!!! After coloring was done I color distressed the egdes with a Chestnut Chalk Ink Spot. Next I added the *Cracked Glass* technique and again color distressed the edges. At last I decorated the card with the Large Halfback Pearls. Hope you like it :) !?!

Please make sure to stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee, Maki and Karen for their vintage ideas!!!

Just  a quick reminder....each FTTC Challenge has a weekly winner, we also draw a monthly winner from all of the FTTC for that month. So, if there was a Challenge in April you still would like to participate in, there is still a chance to win! You can play as often as you like! Check out FTTC61, FTTC62, and FTTC63. The weekly and monthly winners will be announced next week!!!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by!!!!
