Happy Birthday!...Timeless Tuesday #127

Hi all and a very Happy Tuesday to you!  Today I am back with Timeless Tuesday Challenge #127.  And this week Miss Silke is asking for us to create a card based on this Fabulous Inspirational Photo From Crate and Barrel.. 8-)



Well, I thought these colors were just Absolutely Gorgeous together and very inspiring, so that's what I focused on for my creation.. 8-)


Today,I thought I would try a gate fold card for fun little change.. I stamped my sweet little zinnias and sugar bowl from my brand new Flourishes Zinnias set onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored them up with my Trusty Copics using the Feilds Collection grouped by Flourishes and Copic #'s V00, V04, V06, W0, W1, E70, E71 & Y38. I cut out and layered my image using My Classic Circles and Floral Doilies Nesties sets. I shaded my image with a very light touch of Memento Tuxedo black while my die was still in place and then Inked my Floral Doilies edges as well and popped up the whole ensemble up with a few dimensionals.  For my mats and BG layers I chose some Sweet delicate digi dp's from Sassy Design's Celebration  & Chantel  Packs & added a bit of color to tie in my BG with my image and card base using my Copic #V04.  My Flourishes sentiment was stamped with Memento Tuxedo black onto a cute little tag cut out with the help of my Cricut and the Plantin Schoolbook  Cartridge and then shaded with a very light touch of Memento Tuxedo Black  again.  To finish it all up I added a bit seam binding ribbon that I colored up with my Copics to match my color scheme, a sweet little button and tied it all up with some yummy grape bakers twine from MAD Stamper Finds.
Sure hope you will play along with us, can't wait to see what you all come up with.  And please make sure to stop by and take a peek at the Beauties the rest of the Timeless Tuesday Ladies have created for your inspiration! 




Hope you are all having a Fabulous day & thanks so much for dropping in! 8-)
Thanks for stopping by!
