Timeless Tueday #246 - Pick a sketch!

I'm trying to get lots done before I leave the comfort of my craft room this week. Going for a long weekend with the Kids, as we will not see them this Holiday season. This post is all about the Timeless Tuesday challenge at Flourishes. We are to pick a sketch. I am getting more comfortable with these sketch challenges.

For this card I choose to stay away from the a Christmas theme and do something different. We have been to Florence and I have wonderful memories of a day in Tuscany at a vineyard. We had a tour and dinner and lots of wine. It was so memorable, I will never forget it. So here is my interpretation.
On a base of soft sand CS from GKD, I layered some DP from Festival of Prints by Stampin Up, onto ivory CS. I used my new Majestic Elements Spellbinders die to cut out the image. I actually cut out two of them, one in soft sand and one in ivory. Then I trimmed the ivory down a little. It is stamped with Dreaming of Florence by Flourish, and colored with copics. Next, to complete the sketch, I used lace and ribbon with a small buckle. This was just a nice little trip down memory lane for me. Ciao Bella!

As always, I love to see how many comments I can acquire, as you know, I love and appreciate them. Thanks for stopping by.


  1. What a great stamp set, beautiful card and fabulous memories. I know it's corny but after seeing Under The Tuscan Sun I want to go there! Plus friends of ours rented a beautiful farmhouse with their kids and grandkids and it looks spectacular! Fabulous card. Enjoy the kids and your long weekend!

  2. Love the rustic feel of this card. It really does make me think of Tuscany. And I'm with D....after I saw that movie it made me want to go there too. And that die is gorgeous. Love me some dies. Oh, and I can almost taste those figs! Wonderful card!!

    1. Thanks to both of you for always being my true blue cyber friends. Ciao Bella!

  3. Your card is so pretty Barbara! Love the soft grey you used for your background for this beautifully coloured Tuscan image. Love the added texture of the lace and that buckle. Great take on the sketch, thanks for playing along with us at Flourishes Timeless Tuesday!

  4. Absolutely stunning card, Barbara! Love the way you've framed the image with that gorgeous die-cut! Thanks so much for playing along with Flourishes this week!

  5. This is beautiful! I love your coloring on the image--it has a kind of old world feel to it. And, all the gray and white and lovely die cuts make for an elegant design.Thanks so much for joining us in this week's Timeless Tuesday Challenge!
