FTTC117 The Beauty....and more

Hello again!

If you are looking for my MMSC103 card please scroll down :) !!!

This card right here is for this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC117 which is hosted by my buddy Betty and her theme this week is simply *ANYTHING GOES*...yeah!!! Have fun playing!



My card was inspired by this weeks SSS107 Sketch  (flipped sideways) and the fabbo colors from the CR84FN27.

I was a little bit under time pressure when I create this card, so I went for a *sentiment* and I really like this quote from Eleanor Roosevelt which is from the Life Lines Set. The DP I chose is from the SU Melon Mambo Collection and I added a punched out SU Eyelet Border on the edge. The background was scored andadded an extra SU Basic Gray Satin Ribbon. The card was embellished with some Halfback Pearls and some Prima Flowers.

My card is also for the Flourishes Release Week Challenge ~ FLLCMAY11...you still have time to enter there too :) !!!!

Please don't forget to check out my team mates ideas ~ Cindy, Maki, Dee, Betty, Tammy and our May Guest Designer Brenda O'Rear aka *Benzi*!!!
