Good morning dear friends. I trust you had a good weekend. The weather here was quite good, we saw a bit of sunshine even though it was still chilly. We were celebrating my parents 45th wedding anniversary on Saturday and all went out for a lovely family meal in the evening. It was wonderful to spend time with my parents, sister and her family and we seemed to laugh all night!!
I’m here this morning to share my DT card for this week’s stamp with fun challenge. Our theme this week is “cute vintage”, although I did misread the theme slightly and just made a vintage card, but I thought I’d share it anyway. Here is my card:
I made this for my aunt’s 100th birthday a few week’s ago and as I didn’t have an actual photograph of her when she was young I used Google to find a royalty free image to use on my card. I lightly coloured her headband and flowers with flex markers to match my papers and added stickles to the flowers. I inked all the edges for a distressed/aged look and added some lace and a decorative metal corner.
The rest of the design team have created gorgeous cards as always, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate the lovely comments you leave for us.
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
Pile it on challenge – add lace
Sentimental Sunday challenge – die cuts (oval nesties)
Let’s craft and create challenge – butterflies
My mum’s craft shop challenge – fave colour combo (pink/green)
Colour create challenge – pink & green
CRAFT challenge – use numbers
Moving along with the times challenge – things with wings
2 sisters challenge – embossing (white panel is embossed)
Craft your days away challenge – distressing
Joanna Sheen challenge – celebrations
I hope you can join in with our challenge this week and I look forward to seeing what you create. I’ll be back later with my DT card for this week’s cupcake craft challenge but until then have a great day and thanks for stopping by.
