FTTC150 Trifold card....

Happy Tuesday!

It's time for a brand new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC150....YEAH!!! Mona is hosting this round and she has challenged us to create a *TRIFOLD* card. I you are like me and have never created one before, then please make sure to swing by SCS to find a great *Trifold* tutorial.

Here is my idea.....






I decided to use the beautiful Sweet Nature Set. First I stamped the outside of the Kraft CS with the block sentiment using the SU Crumb Cake Ink. The frame and window was created with the Spellbinder Label Eighteen Dies. Next I added the White CS and stamped the rose image with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it with these Copic Markers ~ R14, R17, R22, YG11, G21 and Colorless Blender. The sentiment was stamped onto the right side and I also added some piercing on the side. To finish it all off I added the Red/White Gingham Ribbon and the Silver Pearls.

As always please make sure to swing by the rest of the team for their ideas ~ Cindy, Maki, Heather, Tammy, BeateMona and please help us welcome our new January Guest Designer Cheryl Lea.

Have fun playing along!!!

                                                                   Hugs, ~Silke~
