FTTC126 The Beauty...

Happy Tuesday!

It's time for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC126. Cindy is our host and she is challenging us to *DRY EMBOSS* or *HEAT EMBOSS*. Both techniques are fun to try and I hope you'll come and play along with us?!?



Of course I couldn't resist to use on of my favorite Embossing Folders ~ SU Tulip Frame.  The beautiful quote is from the Flourishes Life Line Set. The DP is from the SU Blushing Bride Collection. I embellished the rest of my card with some Prima Flowers, SU Blushing Bride Ribbon and Silver Pearls. I totally loved the CR84FN33 colors and had to use them again this week :) !!!


Now it's time to hop on over to the rest of the team ~ CindyHeather, Maki, Tammy and Betty. Don't forget to swing by our July Guest Designer Shannon White!!!

Have a wonderful day and I'll be back on Wednesday with a sneak peek of this months Flourishes release!!!

See ya then,
                                                               HUGS ~Silke~
