FTTC139 Holiday Sparkles....

Happy Tuesday everyone!

It's time for a new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC139! Cindy is hosting today's challenge and she has challenged us to create a *Christmas card that features an ornament* on it. We are excited to show you a little *sneak peek* of this weeks brand new release Set *Holiday Sparkle*.

Here is my take on it....



I wasn't sure what direction to go until I saw the awesome Sweet Shop Sketch #129 and the beautiful CR84FN40 colors.



Please make sure to check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, HeatherTammy and Beate. Please make sure to check out our October Guest Designer Rosemary Dennis.

The Senior Design Team are featuring some samples as well...check them out ~ Stacy, Christine, Barb, Cindy and Jan Marie.

Thank you so much for taking the time to stop by today.....have a great week!

                                                                     Hugs, ~Silke~
