Timeless Tuesday #116 - For the Kids


It's Tuesday again and that bring us to another Timeless Tuesday challenge! This week Makiko is our hostess, and she is challenging us to make a card for a child. Check out all the challenge details by visiting the Flourishes blog, and play along! All you have to do is create a card, link it up and leave some love for the Flourishes blog team members!

For my card, I decided the sweet carousel horse in the Enjoy the Ride stamp set would be perfect for a child's card. I paired my image with some of the great Prima "Sweet Fairy" paper from the Flourishes store, as well as this pretty green faux suede ruffle-edge ribbon. My image is colored with Copic markers on Flourishes Classic White cardstock.

I added some magical sparkle with some glitter on the horses mane and tail, and some gold Spica glitter pen on the pole and bridle trims.
See what the other Flourishes blog team members have created today for inspiration, including our new Guest Designer for May...
