Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC66

Happy Tuesday!!!

Hope all you mom's had a wonderful weekend and Mother's Day??? Mine was relaxing and fun....we hung out at the pool Friday & Saturday. With temperatures in the low 90's it was the perfect place to be!!! Sunday the weather cooled off and we had a yummy cook out in the late afternoon.  We played some volleyball and snuggled up watching TV!!! Can't get any better than that :) !!!

Are you ready for another fun Flourishes Timeless Tuesday??? Maki is our host and she is challenging us to "PICTURE IT" !!! Now, a photo card is one way of looking at the challenge; however, you can venture off into other avenues as well. Think magazine pictures, real image designer papers, or take a picture of some of your favorite things and print it out. The photo does not have to be the focal point of the card, either. Think layered flowers, borders, tags, etc!!! There are also many photo techniques that can be used from altered photos, vellum pictures, and "faux cloisonne". Whichever photo option you take, we would love to see what you create with this challenge!


I decided to take a photo of a rose in my garden. Isn't it beautiful??? I printed the photo onto some Glossy CS using the print size 3" x 5". I trimmed it a little shorter and added it to my card. The layout for my card is from this weeks SFYTT Sketch

Here is my card.........



I used two different Flourishes Stamp Sets - the butterfly is from the Fanciful Flourishes and the sentiment is from the Gerber Daisies. I inked the butterfly image in Melon Mambo and the sentiment in Memento Black. I bedazzled the edges with some Dazzling Diamond Glitter. The DP in the background is from the Green at Heart BasicGrey Collection. I finished the card off with some White Lace Ribbon and three Large Silver Brads.

Now it's time to check out Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's take on this challenge!!!

Have a wonderful day and thanks for stopping by!!!

Beautiful card - gorgeous rose! I like how you used the flourished butterfly. I've gotta get mine inked up. Obviously you didn't make this card last night or it would have had a QUADRUPLE loop bow!!!

I had such fun yesterday - just too short. Hope you guys made it home safe and sound! We need to plan the next one soon so we can start the countdown again!
