Thank you! Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge #76


It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC76)! This week yours truly is the host and I have an Inspiration Challenge for you! I've chosen one gorgeous picture to get you inspired by for your card making. You can obviously recreate the look or be inspired by the colors or other elements in the photo. We would love to see what you create!

And here's the inspiration piece I chose:

I just love the colors in this--so fresh and summery, don't you think? So for my card, I chose a very summery set--Flourishes Humming Along. We have these Ruby Throated humming birds at our house--we put out several feeders for them and they are such entertaining little rascals!

I stamped the images on Classic White card stock with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic markers. I thought that gorgeous image (two images, really--the Trumpet Vine and the hummer are two separate images) didn't need much embellishment so I pretty much embraced the white space--I think the card construction is pretty obvious.

This card also works for the SCS Dirty Dozen Central theme this month and DTGT10rsalamon, DTGD10AmberDawn01, DTGD10gbedwright, DTGDflowergal36. If you're a fan club member you can get the details here. If you're not, consider joining so you can get in on all the fun this week!

Thanks for stopping by! Be sure to go see what my team mates are doing with the inspiration piece today! I hope you'll play along with us!
