Timeless Tuesday...pink,one button & ribbon & or lace

Well today at Flourishes we are going to follow the lead of cutie Heather J. and do as follows.Use the color pink,1 button, ribbon & or lace. To me pink can sometimes be hard to use because you have to choose just the right shade to blend it all together.Sooo...I hope I'm in the pink with my choice.I found that this Zinnia set is becoming one of my favorites when making cards as it can be colored almost anyway and be correct. As you can see if you are looking, I did the bowl full of zinnias and used some sweeet bg that was in my bin (think it's probably K&Co. ) but don't quote me on that. Not much to this card as once I put the ribbon on and added my button I thought to myself...what else can I do?? I decided nothing because sometimes more is not the route to go. Simple easy and hopefully pleasing. Are you all off to a good week?? I am as I went back to my routine at the gym with my hunk of a trainer Rory and I felt so good about getting back into the swing of the aches and pains a work out can bring. You know as they say...No pain no gain. Happy week fellow stampers.

LOVE this! You are so right - -simple is perfect and allows your coloring to shine. Your peaches were nice, too. How's the VFW cowboy? I do happen to have a CWA (Cowgirls With Attitude) shirt that I could send you. Wait, nope, it's way too suggestive for a LADY of your caliber. Keep your adoring fans posted.

Simply beautiful Pat. I think less can be more sometimes too. I kinda thought that on my card for this challenge too. You did a fab job with the pretty Zinnia's. :)

Thanks for playing at FTTC.

Love, love, love your card! I am inspired (as I have this set also) to give this a try. I always have trouble leaving anything uncolored, but the vase is beautiful as you have done it! Thanks for some great morning inspiration! Blessings.
