Timeless Tuesday #226

Hi everyone! Broni is hosting our Timeless Tuesday challenge this week and her theme is to "make a splash"....use anything water related on your card such as water images, watercoloring, etc.

For my card I used an image and sentiment from Seaside Life:


The card base is Flourishes classic white, papers are Paradise Beach by Echo Park, the seashell is stamped in Memento desert sand and the sentiment is in Memento tuxedo black.  The circle and scallop circle are both up on separate layers of foam tape.  I added some machine stitching, kraft jute, and dew drops (watery, right?) to finish it off.

On a personal note, this will be my last post as part of the Timeless Tuesday team. I've decided to take (at least) the summer off from blogging.  Tomorrow will be my last post as part of the Color Throwdown team as well.  Thank you to Jan Marie and everyone on the FTTC team. It's been an honor to be a part of Flourishes.  Thank you to all of you who visit my blog to see my Flourishes creations as well.

Check out all the splashy projects the girls have created for you today:

Allison   **  Broni  **  Cheryl
Deborah  **  Jenny  **  Judy  **  Katie
and Berni Cuttino (our June Guest Designer)

Hugs,
Denise

This is such a sweet friendship card. I love the single shell and sentiment as the focal point and your pretty papers back it up beautifully. I so admire your clean card style ( I hesitate to add 'simple' to that because it is not so simple...you have a wonderful gift!) I will miss seeing your beautiful creations each week and wish you all of the best! :) Enjoy your time with your family..it is so precious!
