Cheer up...FTTC166 78

Mona Pendleton | Monday, April 23, 2012 @ 10:00 PM | , , ,

Hi there! It's time for an all new Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge. Thanks to all who played along last week ~ so many pretty projects!
This week, Heather is our hostess and she has challenged us to a game of Bingo!
I opted for the middle column using: Lace, Ribbon and Flowers.
 To create my card, I used the "Thinking of You" sentiment from Zinnias as the "main" sentiment and added a sentiment tag using "Cheer up" from Botanical Bookplates Vol. 2 on Flourishes Classic Ivory cardstock then using a die from the Tailor-Made Classic Tags Die Set to create the darling tag. The pretty patterned paper is from the Prima Song Bird paper pack. 
For sketch inspiration, I played along with Unscripted Sketches which has a twist this week to use something recycled on your card. I upcycled a corrugated cardboard cup liner to make the die cut bird.
Thanks so much for visiting! Please be sure to visit the Flourishes blog for complete details and for some fabulous inspiration visit the entire DT: HeatherSilkeMakikoCindyBeateAmandaGeri Utterback and Kazan Clark (April Guest Designers)
