FTTC102 Feel Better Soon.....and more!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend??? I really enjoyed my Sunday....I had a chance to sleep in just a little bit longer. My hubby took our two older daughters to church and I got to hang out with my sweet little Mimi....she is the BEST snuggler and we had so much fun :) watching Disney Channel...yeah!!!   
Anyway, today we are having a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC102 for you!!! Cindy is our host and she is challenging us to add some *HARDWARE* to our creations!!! For my card I added a SU Silver Ribbon Slider and some Silver Brads. I have tons of hardware leftover...I'm so glad I finally have a chance to use some..yeah!!!




The image is from the beautiful Cherry Blossoms Set and the sentiment is from the Apple of my Eye Set. I started out with some White CS and embellished the background with some DP from the SU Blushing Bride Print Collection. The long strip is Kraft CS and I added some PTI Plum Pudding Ribbon on top. At last I added my hardware and some Glitter.
          .
My color inspiration is from this weeks CR84FN12 and the layout is from this weeks Sweet Sunday Sketch #101 (as you can tell I flipped the layout sideways).



Please make sure to check out the rest of the team ~  Cindy, Dee Maki, Betty and Tammy!!!

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today!!! Hope you get a chance to play along with us?!?
Have a wonderful day and I'll see you soon...hugs ~S~
