FTTC163 Happy Birthday to You...

Happy Tuesday!!!

Beate is hosting today's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC163. The theme this week is to create a *BIRTHDAY* card/project.



I grabbed the beautiful flower image from the Spring Bouquet Set and the sentiment is from the Botanical Bookplates Vol. 1 Set. The flower image was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and colored with these Copic Markers ~ YR02, Y21, R00, R02, YG11, G21 and Colorless Blender. The DP in the background is from the Kaiser Craft Bonjour Collection. The rest of the card was embellished with some White Satin Ribbon, a Silver Button, some White Scrapper's Floss, Glitter and the Silver Pearls.

The colors are from this weeks Color Q Challenge ~ CQC131.....please make sure to stop by the CQ Blog to see all the ideas.


Now it's time to hop on over to the FTTC Blog to see all the DT ideas and all of this weeks entries ~ Cindy, Maki, Heather, Beate, Mona. Please help us welcome our new DT Member Amanda Havon, plus our two new Guest Designers for the month of April Geri Utterback and Kazan Clark.

As always, thank you so much for stopping by...have a fabulous week and I'll be back this weekend with a new card!!!

                                               Hugs, ~Silke~

Such a lovely card, Silke!! That's awesome that we are both Lutheran! We were both actually raised Presbyterian & became Lutheran, long story but it's what is right for us. How cool that your daughter will have Confirmation this year, it's such a special time. :) I hope you have a wonderful Easter!! **hugs**
