FTTC124 A Day of Joy and more....

Happy Tuesday again!

It's time for a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC124. Tammy is our host and she created this awesome Sketch for you/us to try.


Here is my idea....


I used the beautiful Butterflies & Blossoms Set for this design. The DP in the background is from the Webster Vellum & Diecut Kit II. The image itself was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with these Copic Markers ~ R14, R17, R22, BG0000, BG000, B02, BG07, BG10, G24, G94, YG11, Y15 and Colorless Blender.  The tag was created with the SU Large Tag Punch.and inked with the sentiment from the Kids Play Set. My embellishments for this card are ~ Doily, Kaiser Pearls, Flourished Rhinestones, matching Button, White Scrapper's Floss and some White Satin Ribbon.

As always, please make sure to check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, Maki, Betty, Heather and Tammy. Don't forget our super sweet June Guest Designer Pat Adams!!!

Before I go I want to thank everyone for playing my goodie giveaway last week, I was so happy to hear that you liked my little gift bag :) !!! Thanks for all the sweet comments! The lucky winner of the two fabbo Flourishes Set is Lisa aka My Paper Tales. Lisa, please e-mail me at silkeledlow@yahoo.com to claim your prize.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by today! Have a wonderful week! I'll see you again soon...!!!
