Flourishes Timeless Tuesday

“It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC39)! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a guest challenge host this week. Our challenge host is Kathy Jones(wattle) all the way from Australia. Thanks so much, Kathy for hosting a challenge with us. Kathy is challenging us to use border punches or Borderabilities. You decide if you want to use just one border, different patterns, or layer several for a fanciful look. Whatever you decide, we would love to see what you create! Have fun with this one! The skies the limit!”

Today’s card started with me grabbing two things, my new Basic Grey Nook and Pantry paper and my Spellbinders Lattice Borderabilities. Ah, shabby chic heaven! :)

Well, the papers just screamed for the Strawberries stamps. To keep everything very shabby and aged looking, I used a couple different colors of my favorite products. The image and sentiment were stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento ink, instead of Tuxedo Black, and grey-er tones of my Copics were used for coloring. (Remember the larger the number on the marker, the grey-er the color. R81 is a pale pink, but a grey-toned pink.)

I hope that your week is off to a fabulous start! Thanks for all your prayers and support-things are starting to look up here! thanks for stopping by!
