FTTC109, CR84FN19 Thanks....and more!!!

Happy Tuesday!!!

Thank you to everyone who played for my blog candy!!!! The lucky winner of the *From the Desk Of...* Set is Pricilla from My Stamping Corner. Please e-mail me under silkeledlow@yahoo.com to claim your prize!!! Come back soon and I'll giveaway another fabulous Flourishes Set!!!

Moving on to this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge....I'm thrilled to tell you that I'm hosting this weeks FTTC109...yeah!!! If you follow my blog you know I L.O.V.E  butterflies...so my challenge for you is to incorporate *BUTTERFLIES* to your creations!!! Pretty easy right??? So come and join us...I can't wait to see your ideas!!!

Here is my card.....



I used the beautiful Butterflies & Blossoms Set as my main image and the sentiment is from the Humming Along Set. As you can tell I kept my card clean and simple. I added just a few scored lines, my favorite Silver Pearls and the yummy Silk Ribbon!

My color inspiration is from this weeks CR84FN19...psssst...I was really intimidated by these colors, but totally love the outcome! Here are the Copic Markers I used ~ C0, C1, C2, BG000, B00, G14 and Y21 and Colorless Blender.


Now it's time to check out  Cindy, Maki, Dee, BettyTammy ideas. And please don't forget our upper talented March Guest Designer Amanda!!!
