FTTC130 It's getting fruity around here...LOL!!!

Howdy friends!

Can't believe another week has just flown by.....and it's time for a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC130. Tammy is our hostess and has challenged us to get fruity...LOL!!! Please use *images or paper with fruit* in your design!



With today's challenge we have the pleasure of *sneak peeking* a fun set for this month release. The sweet set we are featuring is called Wild for Watermelon. Isn't it delicious??? As you can tell I opted for a CAS design....I stamped the images in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them with these Copic Markers ~ YG11, G24, R24, R32, YR000, YR01 and Colorless Blender. The background was embossed with the PTI Linen Impression Plate. Next I finished the card off with some matching Ribbon, Scrapper's Floss, Button and Silver Pearls

Please make sure to hop on over to the rest of the team for some fabbo ideas ~ CindyHeather, Maki, TammyBettyBeate, Cindy L., Christine, Stacy and our August Guest Designer Allison Cope.

Thank you for taking the time to stop by...I'll see you again tomorrow with a fun post....see ya then!

                                                       Hugs, ~Silke~
