CQC138, FTTC170 Happy Day....and some pictures!!!

Happy Day everyone!

Hope you all had a great weekend??? Today is a very special day...my sweet Rebecca is turning 11. She has been counting down the days...LOL! Since we'll have a busy week, we took her out for lunch on Sunday to her favorite place...can you guess...yes, it is Olive Garden!!!  I have a few pictures of my sweet baby at the end of the post...so stick around!!!

First I would like to tell you about this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday ~ FTTC170. Beate is hosting and her challenge is to create a *FLOWER CARD* with one of our gorgeous Flourishes Stamps!!!

Here is my take on it....



I decided to ink up the beautiful Zinnias Set onto some Flourishes White CS. The image itself was inked in Memento Tuxedo Black and colored with Copic Marker ~ BG0000, B00, Y19, Y38, R14, R17 and Colorless Blender.  Next I added some *scoring*, Corrugated Cardboard, some Ribbon, a Silver Button, some Brown Scrapper's Floss, Glitter and some Silver Pearls. The sentiment is from the Tiny Flowers and Tag Set and it was stamped onto the Tailor-Made Classic Tags Template Die.


My color inspiration for the card came from this weeks Color Q #138....check out this fun palette...


Now it's time to hop on over to the rest of the Timeless Tuesday Team ~ Cindy, Maki, Heather, Mona, Beate, Amanda and our fabulous May Guest Designer Marie Oberg.

As promised here are some photos of my sweet, beautiful and smart birthday girl Rebecca....






Have a fabulous week and I'll be back on Thursday with a new card!!!

                                                                Hugs, ~Silke~

Silke - what a pretty card, but my, what a BEAUTIFUL daughter :). You'd better lock her up, lol. Happy Birthday to Rebecca! Love her top - my DD would be head over heels for something like that -- it's ALL about the sparkle ;). Back to your card...I love your clean style...and the coloring on your focal image is gorgeous!!!

Marisa said...

Love the CQ colour combo and how you used it! Gorgeous focal image. They grow up too quickly, don't they! My baby is 13 and I can't believe it! Great pictures and Happy Birthday to her :)

Amanda said...

What Beautiful Young Ladies you have, Silke!!! They all look so pretty :)

I love your card, and I like that really pretty ribbon :) I'm fascinated by your brown corrugated paper, behind the ribbon, too. It looks great back there and really enhances the ribbon and flowers :)
