FTTC135 Thank you....

Happy Tuesday!

It's time for a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC135. Beate is our hostess this week and she has challenged us to create a *SHAPED CARD*.....fun, fun, fun!!!!

Here is my idea...



The shape of my card was created with the Beaded Circles Spellbinder Die. The sentiment was framed with the Country Charm LabelsThe sentiment itself  from the Flip ~ With Gratitude Set....find out how you can get this fabbo Set right HERE.  I added another layer and decided to add some *scoring* on the left side for more interest. Next I added the Lace Ribbon and the SU Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, the SU Antique Brad, the Prima Flowers and the Silver Pearls around the outside...voila!

My color inspiration for this card came from this weeks CR84FN38...check them out!


Hope you come and join us? Need more inspiration....check out the rest of the team ~ CindyHeather, Maki, TammyBeate and Betty. Make sure to swing by our awesome September Guest Designer Theresa Winslow.

Have a wonderful day and thanks so much for stopping by today!

You prove that with the use of less things, easy to make beautiful art. Using less than three colour in art, is totally unique idea in my blog tour. I hope you can also share your best art in future also.
