FTTC141, CR84FN41 Open it....

Happy Timeless Tuesday!

We have a new challenge for you....this week Maki is hosting and she has challenged us to to add *TREE  & LEAVES ~ use a tree/leave image(s)/element*!!!



I stamped the sweet image from the new A Season of Celebrations Set with Memento Black and colored the bulbs and the girls dress with the Y08 Copic Marker. Next I embellished the card with some old Christmas DP from BoBunny, some Gray Satin Ribbon with Button, Dazzling Diamond GlitterPrima Flower with a MFT Flourish and Silver Pearls.

My color inspiration for this card came from this weeks CR84FN41.....


Please make sure to check out the rest of the team ~ Cindy, HeatherTammyBeate and Mona. Don't forget our October Guest Designer Rosemary Dennis.

Have fun playing....
