Timeless Tuesday Wednesday...late again

Well as pretty much usual I am a day late with my Timeless Tuesday card but my excuse is...I wanted to make sure it was a pretty card so the wonderful designers for Flourishes would look at it and say " Wow". Just kidding I was so busy yesterday I couldn't get to it so here it is today. I used my set called, I think, Gratitude or Thanks from Flourishes and went for the Parrot tulip which is a bee-utiful stamp. I just stamped and water colored penciled it and tried something a bit different. Rather then use ribbon I cut my DP in strips and sort of jazzed up the top with them and added some little pearls to set them off. My bottom is my scored part. Easy card .

I must tell you the picnic was a bust. First of all the weather was 97.8 degrees and so humid you could hardly breathe but far worse was the old "walker wenches" who have the bad habit of rolling those wheeled suckers right over any feet that get in their way. I was like "Ouch!" and was ready to start a fight ....but being the sweet lady that I try to be, I let it pass. I figure in another 10-15 years that might just be me. Happy Hump day fellow rubber necks.

Well, it's Thursday and I figured I'd waited long enough to see if you'd run off with a romeo from the picnic. Glad the smashed toes didn't hurt your card creativity one bit. Classy and Elegant card.
Like how you used DP instead of ribbon ~ clever. Beautiful scoring, too. If you ever find a dude to date, he's gonna be doubly lucky ~ you AND pretty cards.
