FTTC6 Timeless Tuesday Challenge

Happy weekend everyone!! I hope you all are having a fabulous one!! So far, mine has been very productive.....I was able to make 5 cards this afternoon!! YAY!! Here's a card that is very "Splitcoasty." That's was I call cards with lots of card stock showing and a colored stamped image. I've been getting away from that style recently......So, I thought I would do a "Splitcoasty" style card in honor of Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge.

I used Fruit Stand from Stampin' UP. I think it's such an elegant set!! Although, this is only the second time I've inked it up! I really should use it more often!! I colored the image with plain ol' Stampin' UP markers and a blender pen. I added some clear paper glaze to the berries. I used the birds and swirls CB folder on the top part of the card. The ovals are nesties. The PP is K & Company (Baily). Ribbon is from Wal-Mart, Offray brand. Of course, the butterfly is Martha Stewart. The sentiment is Stampin' UP. Pearls are by Mark Richards and the rhinestones are from the Paper Studio.

The colors I used to color in the image are bravo burgundy, rose red, always artichoke, old olive, and summer sun.

Here's a sneak peek of a card I have created to celebrate The Pink Elephants Easter Blog Hop next weekend. I also, have a tutorial planned. And I will also be giving away some BLOG CANDY. There will be THREE lucky winners. So you don't want to miss this!!

Very pretty card! Love all the texture and layers to it. I finally broke down and bought that MS punch last week. Can't wait to get a chance to play with it! Love the two pieces of bling as its center! :>
