peaches...

{For my Shining the Light post, click here}

Hey there... back with a card for this week's Timeless Tuesday challenge.  The challenge this week is to use fruit on your project.  Flourishes has lots of stamp sets that feature fruit, unfortunately I only own one of those sets:  Cherries & Peaches.   Definitely need to change that situation!!    The layout for the card is based on the current sketch from Retro Sketches.   Lovin' those Retro Sketches!!   The card I submitted for last week's Retro Sketch earned a shout out... thanks, ladies!!!



Earlier in the day I had made a card that used papers from the My Mind's Eye Sunshine 6x6 pad and I had some of those scraps laying around so I decided to continue in that theme with this card.  I stamped the peaches image using SU!'s More Mustard, trimmed out the image and then applied some Scattered Straw and Spiced Marmalade distress inks to the image.  After that was done a light coating of Diamond Stickles was applied.  Some of the patterned paper was trimmed to fit the sketch, as was a piece of cream cardstock.  The edges of the cream piece were distressed with Ranger's Old Paper distress ink.  Added a bit of lace and then layered two buttons together using some brown twine.  I also finished the interior of the card with some patterned paper and the remainder of the lace.  The sentiment was stamped inside, as well.

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Vintage Cream; Stamps:  Flourishes; Ink:  SU! and Ranger; Lace:  unknown; Diamond Stickles; Buttons:  PTI; Twine:  May Arts

Ooops I know realise it was only one card and the other was the inside, it would look great as a card itself I think :) Viv xx
