Flourishes Timeless Tuesday - FTTC73

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

I have two posts today and if you are looking for my MTME project please click right HERE!!!

It is time for another fun Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC73 !!! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a challenge host. This month's host is Cindy Coutts. Cindy is giving us a *FRUIT* inspired challenge. You can actually create a card with fruits, use fruity colors, or be inspired by fruit shapes. It will be a cool and refreshing sweet treat whichever choice you decide. We look forward to seeing what you'll create!!!



This card is for a very sweet friend who had a birthday last week.....unfortunately I'm a bit late, but I hope she will like this card regardless!?! I used the delicious Cherries and Peaches Set. The birthday senitment is from the Tag Lines Set.

My colors were inspired by this weeks Curtain Call Act #36 ~ using Kraft, Real Red, Night of Navy and White. I inked the cherry image in Memento Black and colored it with these Copic Markers ~ G12, G21, G24, E39, R17, R22, R27, R29 and Colorless Blender. Once I was done coloring I applied some Crystal Effect to the cherries...it looks so neat..and I hope you can see it in the second photo (make sure to click on it)!?!

Please make sure to stop by Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee, Maki and of course Cindy Coutts blog to see their delicious fruity creations!!!

Have a wonderful day and I hope you have a chance to play along with us!!! Hugs ~S~

This is super fabulous, Silke! I love the color combo and it works so wonderfully with the way you designed. The diamond glaze is such a nice touch for your delicious looking cherries!
Have a wonderful day, my friend!

Oh liebe Silke was für eine zauberhafte Karte, die Kirschen
schauen wunderbar aus, so herrlich frisch.

Und die Blümchenborde am unteren Rand gefällt mir auch wahnsinnig gut. Und überhaupt eine sehr, sehr schöne Karte.

Sonnige Grüße
