Happy Birthday!

It is good to be up and running again!!! Never fun when the computer crashes!!! Fortunately, we were able to do a recovery thing so that helped a lot!!! Wiped out a bunch of stuff, but it is like getting a new computer.

With that said, here is my Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC27)! card a little late. This week is all about hardware. Check out the link to find out how you can play along. I am using Flourishes Sweet Pea and Sweet Violets sets. I colored it with the Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Violet and Evergreen. I am also using some of the Flourishes cardstock in white, which is wonderful for coloring with copics. I finshed my card with a metal slide from the Flourishes Finishing Touches Collection.

Be sure to check out these blog posts of the Friends of Flourishes Blog team designers to see what they created for you this week using hardware!!!
