you inspire me...

Hello!  Have a card today for the current Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge.  Silke is the challenge hostess this week and she has asked us to make a project using  pink.  This was the perfect opportunity for me to finally use the Glitz Design Pretty In Pink 6x6 pad that I received with my Flourishes 123Create April kit.  The stamps I used are the Flourishes Year of Flowers 2 and Sweet Violets.    The layout is from this month's Sketch for You to Try.  



Once, again, I have found myself feeling like I'm not very creative right now and so I kept things simple.  I colored the rose image from YoF 2 with Copic markers and then trimmed it out.   It was then popped up on some white cardstock that was matted with pink.   The sentiment was stamped on the bottom strip and the pearls added to add a bit more interest.   I thought about adding some lace to the upper strip, but in the end decided not to as it just didn't look right.  I still in my white on white with some pops of color mode, too.   Mainly because I just love how clean and crisp it makes everything look.

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white & fine linen; SU! light pink; PP:  Glitz Design; Stamps:  Flourishes; Ink:  Memento Rich Cocoa; Pearls:  KaiserCraft; Copic makers
