Household pink

  Beautiful weather here in NW Florida today!!! My puppy took me for a long walk early and I did a smidge of yard work....
  I finished off this card for the current Tuesday challenge over at Flourishes which is to use something from around your house. Check out the challenge here -
  I used a used drier sheet - one of my favorite techniques. I used double sided tape to stick it over my main image for a softer look and a soft texture too.
  The cherry blossums - from Flourishes of course - were stamped onto watercolor paper and painted with koh-i-noor watercolors
  I used some pretty spring Dp that I have had for quite awhile and a green card base. I embellished with a cream ribbon and a pinkish cream thinner ribbon , a paper bow, a metal charm and some pink pearl drops (from a tulip fabric pen). The main image was cut out with a Spellbinders die.
  The paper bow is a die cut from Accu cut that was designed by my friend Vicki Chrisman -
   All for today - am headed into work tonight in a little while.....
    Have a great weekend!!!

I've never tried using a dryer sheet like that! I love the soft look! I'll definitely have to try it out! I'm so glad you played along with us in the Timeless Tuesday challenge!
