Timeless Tuesday Turns 1!!!



Hi all! Happy Tuesday! It's a special Tuesday for the gals behind Timeless Tuesday! These fun filled challenges turn 1!! YIPPPEEE!



To honor the anniversary, the Friends of Flourishes have a half dozen challenges that you can play to help them celebrate and you get a shot at 7 different prizes! You can click HERE for all the official details!



I'm a sample maker for Silke Ledlow's challenge - FTTC52D - which is to use PINK on your card! That's it... just that simple! You can click HERE to go right to Silke's challenge.

So, for my sample, I pulled out my new Angelic Love set for a fun monochromatic card.....

I pulled a mix of decorative paper from one of my bins as well as some pale pink metallic paper that I later ran through my Wizard with the Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder. The background was made thanks to the recently released Clouds background stamp. I love, love, love the look this stamp creates! I used my Labels 8 die for my main shape. for the angel, I stamped it using Rich Cocoa Memento and stamped it on Flourishes Classic Ivory paper. Then, I used RV0000 to color the angel's skin, B0000 to color the cloud, and E25 and Y23 to color the angel's hair. Easy peasy! The sheer flocked ribbon is from Melisssa Francis and to it... I added a small button for a little extra flair.

Here's a close up of the angel that was cut out and popped up. I used Shimmerz Angel Wingz on the wings to give them a little razzle dazzle!
