Timeless Tuesday #253 Getting in Shape

 
     Over on the Flourishes Blog, the new Timeless Tuesday Challenge, is to create a shape card.  Since they are releasing a new floral set called Flowers for Jan, at the same time, I looked through my floral sets, and came up with this card, using the Sweet Pea stamp set.  This was one of the very first Flourishes sets I purchased!

I used a coral base, with white and designer paper from Wild Asparagus.

My image was stamped with Memento, and colored with Copic markers.  The colors were 0, C1, R00, R22, G82, and YG 63.  There are a couple of strokes of Memento New Sprout.

The dies I used are SB Labels Seventeen, and the Swiss dots Cuttlebug folder, was also used.

For my accents, I created a bow from American Crafts coral twine, The flowers got touches of Diamond Stickles, after they were fussy cut, and I topped things off with an antique button from my mom's collection.

     There is also a new place called the Mod Squad Challenge Blog, and their moderator, Cat is hosting the first challenge.  She is asking us to use  some of her favorite things.  I have used twine, a special button, and lots of Copic coloring.  Go check it out!

     Sounds like we are going to have a heat wave of 26* today.  Guess I can not avoid venturing out for work.  Ugh!  Hope you are all snuggly.  I sure appreciate the visit!

Mary Anne,
This is so pretty, that color is just delish. I thought about this challenge as I have two B-day cards I have to make for two of the boys.
