FTTC81, TSTR24, C4C51 Sunflowers

Happy Tuesday everyone!!!

It is time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC81!!! This week Maki is our host and she is challenging us to use *LACE* on our projects!!! Whether you have real lace, lace punches, lace paper, or any other type of lacy items....just add it to your cards!!! Have fun playing!!!

I *l.o.v.e* lace ribbon....and I chose to added them on my projects this week!!! I actually had so much playing with my new Sunflowers Set that I created two cards :) !!!



My first card was combined with this weeks TSTR24 ~ A Little Bit of Metal. I added an Aged Copper Label Holder with matching Brads and tied it together with the SU Espresso Ribbon.  The sunflower image it self was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers ~ YR00, YR02, Y15, Y17, Y35, Y38, G12, G19, G21, G24, E37, E39, E47, E97, R17, R27 and Colorless Blender. The DP is from this PinkPaislee Collection and the ribbon is from Walmart. At last I added some Dazzling Diamond Glitter.

*********************************************

My second card has almost the same elements, but a different layout...I used the awesome C4C51 Sketch again.



The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with the same Copic Markers as above..I just mixed the coloring up a bit :) !!! For this card I added some Wild Wasabi CS...which I decided to score, some Brown Buttons and some yummy Kaiser Chocolate Pearls. At the end I added some more Glitter....voila!!!

Please check out my sweet teammates ~ Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki!!!

I'm also submitting my cards to these challenges ~
Creative Card Crew ~ Sparkle and Shine
Belli Challenge #98 ~ Add Metal and opt. Sketch
Fab n' Funky Challenge #36 ~ Flower Power
Practical Scrappers ~ add Lace CS or create your own

Now it's your turn....start diggin' out your lace items and play along :) !!! Hugs ~S~
