Timeless Tuesday 147

Are you having a good start to your week so far?  I am on a roll.  I am back again with a card for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.  This week Silke is our challenge hostess and she  has made a sketch for us.  I love sketches.  They make life a lot easier for me.  All I have to do is choose papers and stamps.



I used a set that came out last holiday season called Doves and Holly.  I have tried to sit down and color this image a few times before and it just didn't turn out like I wanted.  I think because it is on the lighter side.  It is hard for me to do good shading on something so light.


Supplies:
Cardstock: PTI Rustic Cream/Kraft
Stamps: Doves and Holly
Patterned Paper: Authentique
Ribbon: Offray
Twine & Button: PTI Rustic Cream
Dies: SB Standard Circles, MFT Deorative Doily Duo, Lil Inker Banner Die






I hope you take a few minutes to stop by and see what the rest of the design team has created.
