Timeless Tuesday...card for a child


It's time for Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes and the challenge is to do a card/project for a young person. Well I don't have any stamps that say "use me" for a kiddo so I went to the stash and found the flag/banner set and decided with some cute BG I would be able to pull it off. Well at least I would try and pull it off.I looked through my designer papers and found this perky stuff and thought it would work with the banner of posies if I colored it correctly and so that's what I did. Added some glitz cause all kids love anything blingy and to top it off or in this case to bottom it off I colored some of those I forget what you call them flowers to match the paper and add a button with some ( not twine) but dental floss to pretend it's sewn on. And there you have it friends and bloggers...fini!
Guess what??? They painted my house and it looks awesome. Soft sage and a lighter sage for accent and ivory for the trim. They haven't done the door yet but as soon as it's painted ( sort of wine or plum) I will post some pictures. Have a great week.
