CQC143, FTTC175 FAVORITES...FAVORITES....FAVORITES....

Happy Tuesday!

Thank you so much for playing my vacation quiz last week..you all are awesome and I knew you would guess it right away :)!!! But before I announce the winner.....I would like to tell you about this weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge ~ FTTC175. I'm excited to host this round, since it's my last official FTTC....you can read the news right HERE.

This week I'm challenging you to use your *FAVORITE FLOURISHES STAMP* along with your *FAVORITE SPELLBINDER DIE(s)* and please finish your card/project off with your absolute *FAVORITE EMBELLISHMENTS*. I can't wait to see you ideas!!!



I have to admit, I have a few favorites and it's always hard for me to narrow them down, but I think for the summer time this super sweet Bee My Honey Set is definitely my top runner :) !!! To compliment the layout I added the sentiment from the Tiny Flowers and Tag Set along with the matching Tailor Made Classic Tag Die. Oh.. and my favorite Spellbinder Die so far is the most gorgeous Romantic Rectangle Set....love it!!! I finished my card off with some leftover Design Paper, Satin Ribbon, Cotton Lace, Button and some matching Ivory Jute Twine, plus some Flowers and Silver Pearls.

The image itself was inked onto Flourishes Classic White CS using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink and I colored it with these Copic Markers ~ C3, C5, B66, YG11, G21, R27, Y21 and Colorless Blender.





Please make sure to check out the entire teams creations at their personal blogs ~ CindyMakiHeatherMonaBeateAmanda, Denise, Allison and our June Guest Designer Alice Wertz.

The color inspiration for my card is from this weeks Color Q 143......


Okay, now onto the lucky winner from the vacation quiz it is...... Sheri from Fun With Paper. CONGRATULATIONS!!! Please e-mail me by June 30, 2012 at silkeledlow@yahoo.com with your address and your choice of a Flourishes Stamp Set. 

Thank you for taking the time to stop by again....we hope you'll have time to play along with us!!!
