Timeless Tuesday / Fruitful

Hello and welcome to another Flourishes Timeless Tuesday.  This week Mona is our challenge hostess and she is asking us to Create a project featuring some kind of fruit as your focal image.



As you can see, I chose the Strawberry set from Flourishes and used some cute MME paper.  I have to say I am terrified of coloring with red.  There is no going back once that has gone outside the lines.  I am loving the Flourishes Classic White cardstock.  The weight is amazing!  I also used the Poppy and Green Grass Copic Collections from the Flourishes Store.




Here is a photo of my BFF Gina and I on Easter Sunday.  We always take a picture together each Easter. Matter of fact, my profile pic is from Easter about 3 years ago.  As you can see, I still look the same.  I don't change my hair much.  It may vary in length depending on how sick I am of it hanging in my food!  LOL


I also used the sketch from Deconstructed Sketch for inspiration.




Here are the links to the rest of the design team for additional inspiration.

Heather, the berries are beautiful. Look at those little guys (the ones that still have some greenish/white)- nicely done. Stitching, designer paper, it all comes together beautifully.

Very pretty Heather! I love your coloring and sponging! Lovely papers and the twine is just a perfect touch!

Amanda said...

This is Amazing, Heather!! I've always loved your style ever since I started hopping the TT blog hops :) You have this way of creating simple, elegant, and non-fussy cards that look spectacular!! I love how you said you are afraid to color with red - Me Too!! But you did a fantastic job on your berries! I'm also afraid of using bold colors and papers :) I really went for the bold reds on my card this week, and it's funny, I feel better - LOL :)
