FTTC114 Fresh Picked.....

Hi everyone!

Cindy is hosting this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC114. She has fun Color Challenge for you to try....please use these colors ~ *Blue, Yellow and Brown* as your main colors on your project this week! Have fun playing along :) !!!

Here is my idea......I chose - SU Bermuda Bay, So Saffron and Chocolate Chip!



I finally had a chance to ink up the fabbo Flourishes Seeds of Friendship Set. Isn't it awesome??? The DP in the background is from the SU Windsor Collection and I embossed it with the SU Fancy Tulip Folder. The image was inked in Memento Rich Cocoa and I also *ink distressed* all the edges with some PTI Chai Ink. Next I embellished the card with some Gingham Ribbon, a SU Antique Brad, some Halfback Pearls and the Prima Flowers....voila quick and simple!

As always please make sure to check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, Maki, Dee, Betty and Tammy.
Please don't forget to check out our super talented April Guest Designer Pattie Goldman!!!

Have a great day and I'll see you soon...hugs ~S~
