Shabby Chic meets God's Beauty and Timeless Tuesday at Flourishes



Hello everyone!! First I wanted to brag a little about my awesome new banner!!! Jami Bova (sgtstamper) designed it....I just love the vintage look she created!! It needs a little size tweeking that we will get to soon but in the mean time I just had to upload it!! I have a new signature, too, but it may have to wait till later today. I have a dentist appointment in an hour...yck!!
Anyway.....

Today on Splitcoast we have 2 color challenges. I finished Emily's color this morning: Creamy Caramel, Cameo Coral, and Old Olive. Since I was in a Shabby Chic mood, everything is sponges, distressed, and speckled!!
I used SU's new God's Beauty set...stamped the butterflies with Mememto Rich Cocoa, watercolored with the challenge colors, cut them out and attached with dimensionals. The background was stamped with the leaves stamp from the set with Old Olive and watercolored with Old Olive and Cameo Coral. The flowers were stamped with Cameo Coral and the edges were stamped with Creamy Caramel using the Itty Bitty background stamp and sponged with Creamy Caramel. The sentiment was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa, the flourishes were stamped with Creamy Caramel and Cameo Coral using Clear Dollar Stamps Elegant Flourishes set. This is also for Flourishes, LLC first ever Timeless Tuesday challenge to use flourishes in the design. Cindy Haffner is the hostess today and her card is gorgeous!!!



The background Coral layer was stamped with the Script bg stamp using Creamy Caramel and the base layer is a sheet of greenish Basic Grey Granola dp.
Glitter was added to the butterflies and flowers for a little glam. Pearls to the flower centers, lace and ribbon finish it off.
Thanks for visiting this afternoon. I may have another upload later today for the second color challenge.
