Thank You

It is with a sad heart that I write this posting for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday challenge.  This is my last Guest Designer appearance for this great challenge. How very appropriate that Mona, who is our hostess this week, has chosen a "Thank You" card or tag for the challenge. So I dedicate this card to the whole Flourishes staff and the marvelous DT's that I have had the privilege of working with for the entire month of May. "Thank You" for this wonderful experience.


This card was created with the Mix-N-Mugs set which can be seen HERE. What versatile set this is!! There is something for everyone, including some great masculine motifs. (great for by men's card basket...keep watching, you'll see them soon!) The tea cup was paper pieced then shading was added with a Copic marker. The floral bouquet was also colored with Copic markers.

Hope you will join in this challenge and if you need more inspiration here are the links for the DT members.

I'm sure I'll see you around the blogosphere. Thanks for visiting.

Back to creating cards in my Butterfly Garden.

Marie, this card is FAB! I love the paper pieced mug and your coloring on the flowers is awesome! Great layout, too! Is that one of your designs, or from a sketch? I think tilted panels make the cutest cards!
