Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC72 - my turn!!!

Happy Tuesday again...long time no see :) !!!

We are back home from our trip up North and boy does it feel good to sleep in my own bed again!!!

I'm happy to show you a card for today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC72!!! I'm your host and have created this Sketch for you!!! It's pretty straight forward...you can change the oval shape to any shape you have, but you should stay true to the rest of the Sketch!!! We are looking forward to your cards!!!


Here is my card......




I used the beautiful Lily of Hope Set. The Lily was inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ R000, R00, G12, G21, G24, Y17 and Colorless Blender. The card was decorated with a Copper Floral Brads. I actually colored the entire brad with a Dark Brown Copic Marker ~ E49  to make it look darker and to match it to the Chocolate Kaiser Pearls I added for decoration!!! The top of my card was pierced and I added a punched out border on the bottom.

Hope you like the Sketch and you'll have a chance to play along!?! Remember you have a chance to win a Flourishes Gift Certificate by participating!!!

Please make sure to stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki for their take on the Sketch!!!

Thank you for stopping by today!!! Can't wait to see you cards!!! Hugs ~S~
