Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC70

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend??? Ours was nice and relaxing...it surely flew by fast!!!

I had some stampin' time Sunday night and made this really pretty FTTC card. Come to find out I made the wrong card for the wrong challenge...yikes!!! Oh well, at least I'm ahead now...LOL!!! Anyway..I snuck upstairs Monday afternoon and made my new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenges - FTTC70 card. Thank goodness it was an easy challenge too...or I would have been in trouble...LOL!!!

Quick FTTC70 info...our challenge host this week is Dee Jackson!!! She is challenging us to a *color combo*. We are to use *BLACK & WHITE plus A THIRD COLOR OF CHOICE*. Have fun with it and we are looking  forward to your creations!!!

Here is the card I whipped up in a hurry.....



I used the beautiful and delicious looking Let Them Eat Cake Set. The sentiment is from the Tag Lines Set. My third color of choice is RED!!! This is actually my favorite color combo...just love it!!!  The CS is textured and it really adds a nice balance to the design. I cut three 1" panels and adjusted them in the BG. Next I stamped the *cake* image and added the sentiment using Memento Black Ink and Real Red. To finish the card off I added the sweet little flower to the cake and some Black Kaiser Pearls....voila!!!

Please make sure to check out all the creations the team has made - Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki!!!
