Let Life's....

Hello friends!!   Found some time today to make a card for the current Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge.  Haven't done a Timeless Tuesday in ages, but when I saw that the challenge was to use kraft I just had to make some thing.... I love me some kraft!!   I combined the challenge with Chupa's current Sketchbook Saturday sketch because.... I love me some Sketchbook Saturday sketches, lol!!



I just had to use one of my very favorite Flourishes sets, Sunflowers, for my card.  For me combining the sunflower images with kraft is like a marriage made in heaven... they go together perfectly!  Colored the large sunflower with Copic markers and then trimmed it out.  The Spellbinders Lacey circle was die cut from some yellow PTI Distressed Dots paper and then a Spellbinders Plain circle was die cut from Vintage Cream.  I stamped the smaller sunflower image on some kraft cardstock that was cut to fit the card front using VersaMark watermark ink and then the sentiment was stamped over that with Tuxedo Black ink.  I finished the card off with some Pure Poppy double stitched ribbon to pick up the red in the little ladybug sitting on the sunflower. 

Thanks for stopping by....

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI kraft and Vintage Cream; PP:  PTI Distress Dots; Stamps:  Flourishes; Dies:  Spellbinders; Copic Markers (Y21, Y23, Y35, Y38, E13 & E29); PTI Pure Poppy Double Stitch ribbon; Ink:  Tuxedo Black, VersaMagic
