FTTC132 All things....

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you are having a great start into this new week? I can't believe it's almost the end of the month again....yikes! I must admit I'm ready for some cooler weather :)  and I'm looking forward to September!!!

Believe it or not, it's also time for a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC132. Cindy is hosting and she has challenged us to create a card with a *SENTIMENT OR VERSE* as a focal point.

Here is my idea....



I went with the beautiful Country Charm Labels Set and the verse is from the Hearts & Flowers Set. The Sketch was inspired by Iwona's Sketchbook Saturday #25 and the colors are again from the CR84FN36 combo.

I decided to add some Corrugated Kraft Box in the background and *ink distressed* the edges with White Ink. Following the Sketch I added a Doily and some Prima Flowers. Next I embellished the card with some Yellow Rhinestone Brads, Chocolate Kaiser Pearls, some Yellow/White Gingham Ribbon., a Button with Brown Scrapper's Floss.

Please make sure to check out the rest of the team ~ CindyHeather, Maki, TammyBettyBeate, and our awesome August Guest Designer Allison Cope.

Hope we have inspired to play along??? Can't wait to see your ideas :) !!!

Have a fabulous day and week...I'll see ya soon!!!

                                                                  Hugs, ~Silke~
