Flourishes Timeless Tuesday and Blog Candy Winner!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

Time does fly by these days and I can't hardly believe that my girls are heading back to school in about 3 weeks.......wahoooooo!!! In the meantime we are enjoying some more quality family time!!! Today we are heading down to Savannah for some shopping. I'd rather be stampin' ...LOL...but I promised my girls a trip to the mall!!!

Hope you have time to stamp, because it's time for another fun round of the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC75!!! This week Betty is our challenge host and she is challenging us to use *FELT* !!! Felt is everywhere right now in the crafting world....you can create flowers, borders, accents, and so much more!!! We can't wait to see your ideas!!!

Here is my idea...........


I wasn't sure what route to go....so many options, but then I saw Karen's Sweet Sunday Sketch #77 . I knew immediately that's the layout I wanted to use. I still had some felt left over from Rebecca's birthday party....(you can see our fun creation right HERE) and created the Large Scallop Felt Borders.

The main image is from the gorgeous Cherry Blossom Set and the sentiment is from the Fanciful Flourishes Set. I inked them in Memento Black and colored the blossom with Copic Markers ~ R000, R00, Y15. I bedazzled the image with some Dazzling Diamond Glitter.  My card measures 3 1/2" x 7".  I finished the card by adding some piercing on top, some Black Satin Ribbon, a Black Button, Black Scrapper's Floss and the Silver Pearls on the side.

Now it's time to reveal the winner of my *Blog Candy* giveaway from last week!!! Congrats to CAMMIE ~ Sweet Violets Paperie!!! Please e-mail me under silkeledlow@yahoo.com to claim your prize!!!

Please make sure to check out the fabulous deal on Flourishes Christmas Stamps!!! You can find all the info right HERE !!!

Thank you for stopping by today!!! Enjoy your day!!! Hugs ~S~
