FTTC159–Inspiration Challenge


FTTC159 challenge Graphic

Hello and happy Tuesday everyone!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC159)!! Heather is challenging us to get inspired from the beautiful photo (on left) for your creation! Please visit Flourishes blog for more information about the challenge.




Here is my card.




I was inspired the colors, flowers and some textures from the photo. I used the image from Sweet Nature and colored it with Copic markers. Then I added the little tag that was created with Tiny Flowers & Tags and Tailor-made Classic Tags Die. It was embellished with the button with vintage twine. The card was designed with Pink Paislee designer paper and paper doily. I added the pleated ribbon underneath the doily. The orange paper ribbon was stamped with script stamp and the pearl was dressed to finish off.

This card was used the sketch from Mojo Monday Sketch 231 (MOJO231).


The Copic Collections I mostly used.

    Very pretty Maki, and the colors are soft and so delicate looking and that pop of orange and green really set the flowers off.
