Happy Tuesday everyone~

I have one card to show you for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC145). Heather is challenging us a fun & easy technique, called *The Dryer Sheet Technique*! Put those used dryer sheets to good use. Simply color your image as you normally would and adhere a used dryer sheet to your image. HERE is a wonderful step by step tutorial at Splitcoaststampers.

Please visit Flourishes Blog for more information about the challenge. Looking forward to seeing your creation!!

For my card, I used Forest of Trees set for the image. I stamped the tree with the dark green ink on the mat and sponged the mat with the brown ink. Then I did the dryer sheet technique. The card was designed with the cardstock and designer papers. The greeting from Sentimental Christmas was stamped on the label. To finish off, I attached the ribbon with button and embellished the pearls.

 

The color combo was used from CR84FN Color Challenge (CR84FN43).
