FTTC111, CR84FN21 Thank you berry much...

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Hope you all had a nice weekend? Ours was busy and it went by way tooooo fast! I wanted to thank everyone for the kind words and prayers for my supervisors family...I passed them on! Janice's memorial service was beautiful. Her former husband sang *Amazing Grace* and it just melted my heart! He did such a fabulous job. I was truly blessed having the chance to work for her...I wish we could have had more time though :(....., but I know she is in a better place and enjoying herself to the fullest :) !!!

Okay...I got to move on! It's time again for this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC111. This week my buddy Betty is hosting and she has a fun challenge theme....*use those poorly unloved other images in your stamps sets!* I'm guilty of that one...LOL!!!

Here is my idea.....



I used the yummy and oh so delicious Berry Sweet Set. I usually only grab the *Raspberry* or *Blueberry* image by itself...but today I also added the perfect matching leave image!!! It really adds another fab touch to this sweet Set :) !!! The images were inked in Memento Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~  Fuschia Collection, Green Grass Collection and a Colorless Blender. I wish my camera could have captured the striking green color a little bit better, but oh well...it is what it is!!! The card was finished off with some matching Scarlet Jewel Stitched Ribbon, a matching Button and some fabbo Silver Pearls.

Of course I could not have pulled it all off without the fabulous CR84FN21 color combo...


Now it's time to check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, Maki, Dee, BettyTammy ideas. And please don't forget our super talented March Guest Designer Amanda!!!

Thank you for taking the time to swing by here today...have a fabulous day! Hugs ~S~

Great colour combo - the green striped DP is so yummy and looks great against the dark ribbon. Berries look good enough to eat LOL!

Amazing Grace is one of my favorite hymns and I think I cry just about every time I hear it as the truth in the words always ring loud and clear in my heart. So glad to hear it was a lovely service. Have a great week :)

LOVE this card, Silke!!! By the way, I have been meaning to ask you what white cardstock you prefer? I have 4 different brands of white cardstock I use. LOL But I see how you layer with white so well so wanted to ask your opinion!
