FTTC136 Très Chic....

Happy Tuesday!

Hope you all had a fabulous weekend? Ours was AWESOME! Our GSU Volleyball team won the *Bash in the Boro's* tournament...YEAH!!! GO EAGLES! The last game was pretty nerve wrackin', but at the end we won. Super cool!

Anyway, the time has flown once again it's a new theme at the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC136. My buddy Betty is hosting and she has challenged us to *ALL DOLLED UP*. We are playing dress up and going all girly with ribbons and bows, pearls & glitz and of course anything else that is girly!!!




I decided to ink up the brand spanking' new Feminine Charm Set. Isn't it gorgeous...and definitely super girly :) ?!? The DP is from my SU stash and I added  *distressed* the edges and added some *faux stitching* as well as some Pearl Flourish. Next I added the doily...gosh I love these things....added the tag with  some *scoring* and the main image, the Ribbon, Flower, some Silver Pearls as the necklace and not to forget all the extra Kaiser Pearls on the corners.

My idea for this design came again from the CR84FN38 color combo...check it out right here...


Now it's time to check out the rest of the team and I hope you will have a chance to create a *girly girl* card :) ~ CindyHeatherMakiTammyBeate and Betty. Make sure to swing by our fabbo September Guest Designer Theresa Winslow.

Thank you soooooo much for stopping by today...

                                                                   Hugs, ~Silke~
