FTTC177–Sentimental Challenge

 

Sweetness_of-_Friendship_1-

Hello and happy Tuesday!

It is time for another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC177) and Denise is challenging us to make a sentiment as the focal point of your card or creation! Also, Friends of Flourishes are featuring one of July Release sets, Sweetness of Friendship :) Woohoo!! Please visit Flourishes blog for more information about the challenge.

To make the beautiful sentiment as the focal point, I used the images from Summer of Blossoms to decorate around the sentiment. The sentiment was stamped with Memento tuxedo black on the classic white cardstock and it was die cut with Spellbinders Label 20. Then I sponged the mat with Memento summer sky & bahama blue using blending tool. The flowers were stamped and colored wit Copic markers. Then I fuss-cut each piece and adhered around the sentiment. The card was designed with Bo Bunny Country Garden designer paper (I also stamped the flower image on the paper) and colored cardstock. To finish off, the crochet lace trim  and rhinestones were embellished.

 

 

Copic colors I used for this project:
