FTTC50 Simply Scenic

This weeks Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge is brought to us by Betty Wright and she has asked us to create a scene with our cards this week.  Creating a scene is no problem for me - doing it with cards is a 'whole 'nother show'! LOL - sorry I could not help myself!!  I knew straight away that I wanted to use this Limited Edition set that I was sent by Flourishes when I was honoured by being one of their Loyal Royals - I love the images in this set and they are perfect for this challenge.

I used the last piece of sky DP that I had left and stamped the image into it with SU True Thyme and the sun was sponged with the negative from a punched circle .  I added a strip of sponged DP along the base of the image.  The corner has been clipped with a small circle punch and then the image is layered into white distressed CS that has been sponged with True Thyme.  A strip of ribbon has been added and a length of embossed border has been inked distressed and sponged.

As tempted as the eclectic in me was to add more, I felt that the card was finished and decided that this is definitely one of those times when 'Less is More' This is as close to CAS as I get!

I am linking this to the Creative Inspirations Challenge - Distressing
Tuesday Taggers Challenge - Leftovers - the CB edge is leftover from another card, the DP is also leftover and the ribbon is one of those offcuts that just sit there forever!! I think this qualifies!

Thank you for visiting and those lovely comments you leave me - you know I love to see that you have been!!  God bless you!
