Hello Friend...Timeless Tuesday GD!

Hi all and a very Happy Tuesday to you! I have some Super Exciting news to share with everyone today! The Terrificly Talented Tammy Hershberger and the Fabulous Ladies of Flourishes Timeless Tuesday have asked me to join them as their Guest Designer for the month of July!  I can't even begin to tell you how excited and truly honored I am to have been asked to join them this month... You see, these Phenomenal Ladies are the ones that I go see when I am in need of inspiration! 8-)
Well, this week, for  Timeless Tuesday Challenge #125,  Miss Heather is asking for us to make a card for a friend, either across the miles or nearby, and your card must have "Friend" in the sentiment...


For my creation today, I chose to use Flourishes Friendly Reminders set, which I've had in my stash for a while now and had really been wanting to ink up, and thought it would be just perfect for this weeks Challenge... 8-)
I stamped the little Summery Straw Hat onto Flourishes Classic White with Memento Tuxedo Black and colored it up with my Trusty Copics using Flourishes Flesh Tones Collection 1, Y21 and the Lilac Collection.  I very carefully cut out my image and popped it up with dimensionals onto a Classic Nesties Circle that had been shaded with a touch of Peeled Paint Distress Ink and then matted them up with the help of my Blossom Nesties set, which I also popped up with dimensional.  My mats and BG were created using Basic Grey's Beautiful Kioshi pack which I thought was a pretty good match for my cheerful summery image. To finish it all up, I stamped my Flourishes sentiment directly onto my BG with Memento Tuxedo Black, added a Sweet MS punched border, a bit of pretty lavender ribbon from Michaels and a fun little button all tied up with hemp twine from my stash.
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 Gorgeousness the rest of the Timeless Tuesday Ladies have created for your inspiration!
