Timeless Tuesday #106


It's MY turn to host the Timeless Tuesday challenge today on the Flourishes blog, and since my birthday is approaching I thought I would challenge everyone to create a birthday card! Whether it's for an immediate need or if you just need to add to your stash, birthday cards are something you always need to be creating. So show me what you've got today to help someone celebrate their special day!

For my card, I pulled out the Friendly Reminders set and decided to use this simple straw hat hanging on the hook for my focal image, and used the "Celebrate" sentiment from Seasonal Wreaths. The layout is the Mojo Monday sketch for this week... GREAT sketch, don't you think? I picked out a variety of Cosmo Cricket Circa 1934 papers for my design, and colored my image with Copic markers. The Die-Namics Faux Crochet border is peeking out below the seam binding, and I used some black KaiserCraft pearls from the Flourishes store to embellish, as well.

The other Flourishes gals have some fabulous birthday cards to share with you today as well, so be sure to visit their blogs for more inspiration!

Makiko * Silke * Laura, February Guest Designer

Be sure to visit the Flourishes blog for all the details on how to enter the challenge! You could win a $10 gift certificate to spend in the online store if you're the lucky random number drawn next week!

I want to thank everyone who left comments yesterday letting me know you were keeping my daughter Kelsey in your prayers. Our visit to the doctor was very helpful, and hopefully over the course of the coming 7-10 days she's going to be seeing a big difference in how she's been feeling! Thanks so much for your love and prayers!

Have a great day!
