FTTC52B Sweet Violets

Here is the second Challenge for the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge 1st Anniversary! I am thrilled to have been asked to play along for the celebrations - thank you ladies!! 

This sample is for Betty's "cut it out" and "pop it up" challenge (FTTC52B)  Please check out the Flourishes Anniversary Celebration post to find out how to play along!   I have used the lovely Violets set - thank you to my stamping friend Michelle (aka happylittlestamper) for making a special trip to come and visit, letting me stamp off her fabulous Flourishes images, so I would have a better variety - thank you Michelle - you are the best!


The image has been cut out with Nestibilities Label 1 and coloured with SU Chalks.  The violets have been popped up on foam dots, you can see the fabulous dimension it adds here.  The DP is from Stampin' Up and has been distressed and sponged (of course!)  Knotted gingham ribbon is added onto the Nestie.


The sentiment has also been sponged and layered onto white CS, and finished off with a pearl added to each side!


So there you have it - Challenge number two - what great variety so far - well there is more to come so I will see you on the next one!   Make sure you check out what the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge Design Team and the other players - be prepared to be inspired to the "MAX!'  I am loving what I have seen so far!

Thanks for coming and visiting with me today, I appreciate you comments - I love seeing that you have been!  C'mon and join in at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge for their First Anniversary Celebrations - there is heaps of fun to be had!  Make sure you link them to Mr. Linky over at the Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge Blog.  God bless you!
