FTTC125 Friends....

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you all are enjoying your summer so far and I hope all my American friends had a fun 4th of July???

I'm taking a few days off this week and I'm looking forward hanging out with my hubby and girls. Sorry I have not been productive at all this past week....but I'm happy to share a card for this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC125.  Heather is our host and she has challenged us to create a card/project  for a friend across the miles or nearby. The card must have the word *FRIEND* in the sentiment.

Here is my idea....



I decided to use the beautiful sentiment from the Angelic Love Set. I inked it in SU Riding Hood Red. The Sketch was inspired from my sweet friend Iwona's Sketchbook Saturday and the colors were inspired by this weeks CR84FN33 colors.


The Design Paper I chose is from the SU Sending Love Specialty Collection. I embellished the card with the Spellbinder Beaded Circle Die, SU Blushing Bride Ribbon, Halfback Pearls, Prima Flowers and a punched out MS Butterfly.

Now it's time to hop on over to the rest of the team and I hope you will have a chance to play along! ~ CindyHeather, Iwona and Tammy. Don't forget to swing by our new July Guest Designer Shannon White!!!

Enjoy your summer!!! I'll see you soon... Hugs ~Silke~
