FTTC88 Thank You!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend??? Ours was relaxing...I took the girls to see the new Disney Movie *Secretariat* on Sunday afternoon. We all loved it...Mimi was so tired she fell asleep at the end....LOL!!! I'm also happy to tell you that everyone is well again at the Ledlow house...well at least for right now!!!

Anyway, today is my day to host the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC88!!! I'm challenging you to *INK & EDGE DISTRESS* your cards or projects!!! I really love both techniques, because they add so much dimension and texture!!! Hope you will join us this week?!?

Here is my idea.....



I used the gorgeous Winter Bouquet Set as well as the Christmas Music Set. The bouquet was inked in Memento Black and colored with Copic Markers ~ E47, E53, R12, R14, R17, R0000, BV08, G14, G21, G0000, G24, YG63, YG67, Y08, Y19, Y38 and Colorless Blender. The music image was inked in Crumb Cake onto Crumb Cake CS. All edges were ink distressed with the Crumb Cake Ink as well. The edge distressing was done with the SU Cutter Kit. At last, I added the Glitter, the Striped Ribbon with the Gold Pearl Cord and the Button.

Flourishes also kicked off their Christmas Week yesterday!!! Makes sure to read all about it here. That's why all the Timeless Tuesday gals have created a Christmas card today!!! Please make sure to stop by ~  Barbara, Betty, Cindy, Dee and Maki's blog to see their ideas!!!
