FTTC143, CR84FN42 Jolly Holiday....plus some pictures!!!

Happy Tuesday!

We had a fabulous weekend, how about you??? Sarah's pageant was fun and as promised I have some pictures at the end of this post. But first, I would like to share my Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC143 card with you.

Mona is our host today and she has challenged us to try a technique called *DOUBLE EMBOSSING*. You can find the step by step tutorial and video right HERE.



My card was embossed with the Cuttlebug *Snowflakes* Folder. I created my frame with the Spellbinder Label 18 Dies. I could resist using my sweet snowwoman *wink* from the Warm Winter Wishes Set. The image was inked in Memento Black and colored with the C1, C5, R00, RV63 Copic Markers. We are also sneak peeking the new *Sentimental Christmas* Set today and I chose to show off the *Have A Jolly Holiday* image. I embellished the rest of my card with some Silver Pearls, a Black Stitched Ribbon with matching Black Button, some Silver String and not to forget the Dazzling Diamond Glitter.

My color inspiration came from this weeks CR84FN42....using Black, Pale Pink and Neutral.


Please make sure to swing by the FTTC blog to see all the beautiful ideas the team has created with the *Double Embossing* technique ~ Cindy, HeatherTammyBeate and Mona.  Don't forget to stop by our November Guest Designer Miriam Napier.

Now on to Sarah's pageant photo's...yeah!!! I'm sooooooooooo thrilled to tell you all that Sarah was crowned *3rd Runner Up*. This was her second time participating in a pageant I thought it was a huge success plus she was the youngest in her age group (13 -15 years)! I'm so proud of my baby...she was so confident & gorgeous and it definitely showed in the end result!!!







As always, thank you so much for taking the time to stop by at my blog! See ya soon....


                                                                       Hugs, ~Silke~
