Vintage Flowers

Hello friends,

A vintage card today and  created for a dear friend celebrating her birthday in February.  The Double D Challenge inspiration photo and theme, to add blue and flowers, inspired me. By the way there is still time to enter the first Double D challenge, you have one day left to join us in our challenge! There are fabulous entries in the gallery so far and we’d love to see your creations. There is also a prize to be given out with a random draw. In addition to the prize offered, a Top Creative Winner and a Top 3 will be chosen by the Design Team. International entries are welcome as well!

For my card I used a vintage scrap from Tuck DB and a sentiment stamp from JustRite. I layered the image on blue designer paper and vintage lace. I finished off with a few flourishes, vintage ribbon, cord, a pearl heart and flowers. I hope you like today’s creation.

Challenges entered:
