FTTC164, CQC132 Hello Friend...and some pictures

Hello my sweet stampin' friends!

Hope you all had a wonderful Easter weekend? Ours was fabulous! I'm so excited to tell you that Sarah did amazing in her pageant this weekend and placed 1st Runner Up....I'll have some pictures waiting for you at the end of this post...stick around!!!

It's time to tell you about our new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC164 this week. Mona is our hostess and she has challenged us to create a *FRUITFUL* card/project. Have fun playing along and please visit the FTTC Blog for more details and all the entries this week.

  

For my *fruity* card I decided to ink up the yummy Pears Set and the sentiment is from the Sweet Violets Set. I started out by inking both images onto Flourishes White Cardstock using Memento Tuxedo Black. Next I colored the pear image with these Copic Markers ~ N1, YG11, G12, G24, Y21, YR04, R000, R14, R17 and Colorless Blender. The card was embellished with some piercing around the edges, the Black/White Check Ribbon, the punched out Scalloped Border and the Silver Pearls.

Please make sure to check out ~ Cindy, Maki, Heather, Mona, Beate, Amanda and our April Guest Designers Geri and Kazan.

Before I go, I wanted to tell you that my card was also combined with this weeks Color Q Challenge ~ CQC132 and the the Deconstructed Sketch #46.......



Here are a few pictures of Sarah and family......

Thank you for stopping by....have a fabulous week!!!

Beautiful card, and your daughter is absolutely gorgeous, Congratulations on her first runner up! Can I ask where you get her gowns for her pageants? We are doing one in May but don't need something overly fancy, but I would like to look at some pageant gowns.
