FTTC30 Gerbera Daisies, TSG17 Happy Birthday

Happy Tuesday!!!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC30)!!!! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a Guest Designer this week. Our Challenge host is Liz Williams also know as *lazylizard*.

Liz is challenging us to use *PEARLS* on our cards. Whether you want to use pearlized papers, pearlx, pearl paints, halfback pearls, or actual pearl beads, whatever you choose to use we would love to see what you create!!!

Did somebody say *Pearls* - LOL!?!?! Perfect Challenge for me - he,he,he!!! I got to use my favorite Silver Pearls guilt free!!!

Of course I had to use the fabulous new Gerber Daisies Set!!! The layout is from last weeks MTSC35

This Set is so fun to color and since Gerber's come in so many colors you can really mix up the colors to your liking!!! For this card I used the Tea Rose and the Hollyhock Collection.

After I colored the flowers I added some Pink Shimmerz. You can see it better on the close up photo!!!

Please don't forget to check out - Betty, Cindy, Kimberly and Liz's blog for close ups!!!

Hope we have inspired you to play along???

My next card is for my stampin' friend and this weeks Featured Stamper Joanne Grzelak aka *jojot*. I'm one lucky girl because I get to serve with her on the There She Goes Design Team :) - Congratulations Joanne enjoy your week in the spotlight!!!

If you haven't been to Joanne's gallery.....then you missed some fabulous eye-candy!!! Here is the card I cased.

The reason I chose to case this card was not only do I have the same Stamp Set - Cupcake Mix & Match from There She Goes, but I also designed it for the TSG17 - Birthday Bash Celebration over at the new TSG Blog!!!

Here are the changes I've made - the layout, the colors and size of the card.

The layout is from the Sweet & Sassy Sketch - SSS18.

Of course I had to add some more Silver Pearls. The colors I used are So Saffron and Rich Razzleberry - I think they look so pretty together!!! The RR CS was scored!!!

Hope you come and celebrate with us the 1st Birthday of There She Goes??? Stay tuned all week, because Jessica is giving away some awesome Stamp Set!!!
