Flourishes Timeless Tuesday’s 100th Challenge Celebration Blog Hop

 


Good morning! I am so excited about this morning's post! The Flourishes team has asked it's customers to join them today in their Timeless Tuesday's 100th Challenge Celebration Blog Hop! Well since most of know that Flourishes is one of my all time favorite stamp companies, of course I had to join! :) What perfect timing too because my order from them came in the mail this week! I had been eyeing this set called "Cherry Blossoms" for quite a while now and finally decided to get it! Yay! I absolutely LOVE cherry blossoms in the spring so I knew this set was a must for me! 
Anyway, the challenge for this week's Timeless Tuesday was all about your favorites! Well I would say I included a lot of favorites on this card. First of all, this cherry blossom stamp is one of my new favorites and cherry blossoms are one of my favorite flowers! :) Pink is also a favorite color and I just love using glitter (which this card has lots of, it's just hard to see in the picture). I colored the flowers with my Copic markers and added some fun dew drops in the corners of the image panel. For a little bit of extra flair I also used my Martha Stewart lace punch to add a fun little scallop. 

As much as I love this card, I am honestly really disappointed in this picture. It definitely does not do the card justice. We got a new camera and I just haven't been able to figure out how to use it yet. I also had a bulb burn out in my photo tent light and the bulb I replaced it yet puts off a yellow glow. :( I am going to try and take a picture of the card in the sunlight and see if that helps with the colors. I really want you to be able to see how beautiful the coloring turned out! 

Well, that's it for my post! Make sure you stop by the Flourishes blog so you can see who else is participating in today's blog hop! I can't wait to see what the other ladies have come up with! :) Thanks for taking the time to check out my card! Enjoy your weekend!

Cameras can be so frustrating, but your card still is very lovely. I can see why you love the image. Love the dewdrops and Martha Stewart punched border - a few of my favorites, too.

Oooo pink and glitter...you know you're a girl after my own heart! LOL And wow!!! Those cherry blossoms look exquisite!!

Tammy Hershberger said...

This is gorgeous! Your coloring is awesome on the cherry blossoms, and it's such a small detail but I think that plaid paper sets everything off so nicely!

FibreJunky said...

Beautiful card!!! I love cherry blossoms, too, which makes living in the Baltimore/DC area really nice. Love how you popped up some of the flowers and I agree that the plaid dp really gives the whole thing some extra pizazz.

Janet said...

What a lovely card--I love how you outlined the image in that bluish tone--makes such a difference to the grey that people normally use.

Cammie said...

This so lovely! I love the dp and the matting for the layers.
