I bet you thought I was never posting again! Well it's been an adjustment with the baby but I think I finally am back in the swing of things. Whew! 17 years is a long time without a baby in the house and though you don't forget, you do change your lifestyle and changing it back isn't easy!
While I was at the show last weekend I took a couple of orders. The first was for a vintage style birthday card for someones daughter who was turning 49. I know when I turned 49 earlier this year I didn't want any reminders of just how old I actually was so I didn't put any numbers on this card. She'll thank me I'm sure! Her favorite color is purple so I tried to stay with some purple tones in the card. All purple would have been boring so there's some grayish blue and old photo colors as well.
The beautiful image of the girl comes from Vintage Feedsacks and the sentiment on the front is from Create with TLC. I used some ivory organza flowers that I spritzed with pomegranate Glimmer Mist and some white roses that I brushed with old paper distress ink. The butterflies are brads.
The inside sentiment is an Inkadinkadoo Stamp that I scanned and then recolored to match the colors I was using. The card stock I used was double sided and the light script was already there. I thought it looked elegant so I kept the inside simple.
