Flourishes Web Celebration - Day 2 / FTTC57


Welcome back for the second day of Flourishes Web Celebration!! Since Tuesday is also time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday, we are combining the FTTC challenge into this week long celebration!!

Here is today's challenge detail.
Day 2: Welcome to day 2 of the Grand Opening Celebration for Flourishes! We're celebrating our new home on the web! Today, for the Timeless Tuesday challenge, it's my turn to host the challenge and I am challenging you all to get in the spirit and create a card full of celebration!!
Simply create and link up on the challenge post of Flourishes blog and you'll be in the running for a goody bag from Flourishes! If you upload to Splitcoast, please use the keyword FLLCCEL2 and since this is also a Timeless Tuesday challenge as well, be sure to also add on the keyword FTTC57 to be in the running for the weekly drawing for $10 off in the Flourishes store. That's right – one challenge with two chances to win! You have until Monday, March 15th at 6 PM EST to link up your cards.

Here is my take on the challenge.


Just before I started to make a card for this challenge, I got a tweet from a friend of mine in Japan that she was heading to hospital to deliver her first baby!! I thought what it would be wonderful to make a card for celebrating the beginning of life - BABY!! I don't know if she had a baby yet because she hasn't tweeted me yet after that...wishing she's having no complications and just enjoy being Mom.

I colored the image from Baby Love with Copic markers and paper pieced the parts of the image. The image was adhered on the classic white mat with dimensional adhesives. The decorative layer behind the main mat was cut with FLEUR DE LIS Pendant die. To complete the card, the ribbon and pearls were added. I stamped the sentiment inside.



Now, check out what these Flourishes DT and FOF have created for the challenge!!





Stamps:
Baby Love (Flourishes)

Paper: classic white (Flourishes), sweet blush (PTI), designer papers (DCVW, K & Co.)
Ink:
Memento tuxedo black (Tsukineko), Copic markers
Accessaries: ribbon, pearls
Tools: Spellbinders Pendant die, Nestabilities



Thank you for stopping by.
