FTTC122 Thinking of you and more!

Happy Tuesday everyone!

Hope you all had a wonderful weekend?!? I have been under the weather last week and trying to recuperate! I'm feeling a tad better and played along in this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC122. Maki is our host this week and she has challlenged us to use only *CIRCLES AND SQUARES* on our creations.



My inspiration came from the Embellish Magazine ~ Background Stamping Color Trend Challenge. The requirements are to use the colors shown in the photo down below and to stamp the background. Loved the colors and it worked perfectly with the images from the fabulous newly released Flourishes Set called Zinnias. Isn't it gorgeous??? The sentiment is actually from the Orchid Set.


My background was stamped with the single flower from this set. I used Kraft CS and SU White Craft Ink. The main image was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ YR01, YR02, YR07, BG000, B00, B01, Y15, G24, C1 and Colorless Blender. I added a stripe of White CS and scored it and topped it off with some matching Satin Ribbon, Button, Glitter and some Silver Pearls.

Please make sure to swing by the rest of the team and see their beautiful ideas ~ Cindy, Maki, Betty, Heather and Tammy. Don't forget our Guest Designer Pat Adams!!!

Thank you for taking the time to swing by...see you again soon! Enjoy your day!
