Flourishes Timeless Tuesday meets Dirty Dozen Challenges!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC76 !!! This week Barbara is our challenge host and she chose this gorgeous picture below for our *Inspiration* piece!!! You can recreate the look, be inspired by the colors or other elements in the photo. We can't wait to see your ideas!!!

Here is my take on it.....



Of course I had to use the gorgeous Spring Bouquet Set. The image was inked in Memento Black and I colored it with Copic Markers ~ R000, R00, E00, E000, YR02, YR04, YR07 G12, G21, G24 and Colorless Blender. The sentiment is from the Humming Along Set.

The DP in the BG is from the SU Welcome in the Neighborhood Collection. I matched it up with some Wild Wasabi CS which I decided to score. I added some White Scalloped Felt on the bottom and some White Lace Ribbon in the center. At last I added a pierced panel behind my main image, added some Dazzling Diamond Glitter and finished the card off with some Silver Pearls.

This card was inspired by some of the Dirty Dozen July 2010 Challenges ~ DTGD10rsalamon,
DTGD10AmberDawn01 ~ DTGDcraftycaro and DTGD10gbedwright. Become a SCS Fan Club Member and you can play along as well!!!

Please make sure to check out Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's blog to see their take on the IC picture!!!

Enjoy your week and I'm looking forward seeing your cards!!! Hugs ~S~

I am amazed how you can put that many yummies on a card and have it look beautiful and not overdone. I don't think I would fare so well! Really gorgeous! I may have to pull out the couple Flourishes stamps I have and give this a whirl!
