FTTC104, CR84FN14 Life and Love.. and more!!!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Thank you so much for playing the Valentine challenge with us, we had such a great turn out and all of your creations were super AWESOME! This week we have another fun Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC104 for you!!! Maki is our host this week and she is challenging us to add *BUTTONS* to our cards/creations!

I love buttons and I have a LOT of them...!!! Here is my idea on the challenge.....



I used the beautiful sentiment from the brand new Hearts & Flowers Set and the heart is from the Fanciful Flourishes Set. The DP in the BG is from the Basic Grey Basic Manila Collection. I added a Round Doily in the BG and embellished the card with some PTI Razzleberry Fizz Stitched Ribbon, some sweet Pink Heart Trinkets, Silver Pearls, a Large Scalloped Border, a Border of Bubble Dots Ribbon and I bedazzled the heart with some Glitter.

My color inspiration is from this weeks CR84FN14 ~ using Light Pink, Bright Pink and Brown.


Now it's time to check out the rest of the Team ~ Cindy, DeeMaki, BettyTammy and our super talented February Guest Designer Laura Pryor!!!

Have a fabulous week and I'll see you soon!! Hugs ~S~
