Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

Happy Tueday!!!

How was your weekend??? Ours was awesome....we had a little going away party for one of our neigbors Friday night and two birthday parties on Saturday!!! On Sunday I stamped and took it easy ~ it's good to be back on a routine!!! 

Are you ready for a little stampin' fun??? Check out this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC79!!! Cindy is hosting and she designed this awesome *SKETCH* for us to try. As far as the Sketch goes...you can turn it, modify the shapes, but in the end, it should still look like the Sketch. Have fun!!!


Here is my take on it (I flipped the Sketch)........





I used the gorgeous Berry Sweet Set. Aren't the raspberries delicious??? I still had some Kraft CS Notecard/Envelope laying around and decided to use it for today's project. The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic MarkersR000, R17, R22, R27, R29, G12, G24.

The DP in the BG is from the BasicGrey ~ Basic Manila Collection. I topped it with some Real Red CS and another Kraft CS which was embossed with the PTI Linen & Canvas Impression Plate. The Red Striped Ribbon is also from SU. The edges were ink distressed using the Ranger Antique Linen Pad. At last I embellished the card with a matching Red Button and some Silver Pearls.

Please make sure to check out the gorgeous cards Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki created!!!

Thank you so much for stopping by and we hope you have a chance to play along?!? Hugs ~S~

Velta said...

If I were the mailman and I saw this envelope, I would steal it just knowing that there was something beautiful inside...I know...me bad...This is stunning Silke!!! Actually, I remember stealing the 50 cent piece my dad gave me to put in the church basket when I was little...of course I got caught. I put the piece in my shoe and forgot about it...when we were having lunch, I was swinging my legs under the table (which momma hated) and the piece slung out of my shoe....I won't go into what happened next :)
