Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC30)!

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge(FTTC30)! It is the last Tuesday of the month so we have a guest challenge host this week. Our challenge host is Liz Williams(lazylizard). Liz is challenging us to use pearls on our cards. Whether you want to use pearlized papers, pearlx, pearl paints, halfback pearls, or actual pearl beads, whatever you choose to use we would love to see what you create.

I am using Flourishes newly released Gerbera Daisies set. I am using Flourishes classic white cardstock. This cardstock is wonderful for coloring with copics. I am Flourishes Copic Color Collection in Dusty Rose, Daffodil, Tiger Lily, Fields, and Evergreen. This set is beautiful and fun to color. For the pearl challenge, I added a few pearls to the opposite corners. I also added three to the main panel to create some balance.

This card is for two other challenges as well. The sketch is part of the Mojo100 Anniversary Sketch Challenges. This one is for the MOJOJANETTE. I am also using only SU NEW in colors which is the challenge issued by Loretta at the OCC. I used melon mambo, crushed curry, and razzleberry dp. I did sponge some Ranger ink vintage photo onto the pattern papers to tone them down quite a bit so that my beautiful gerbera daisies would be the focal point. I left the focal panel crisp white for added contrast with these colors and the flowers.
