A Vintage Card For A Dear Friend......


Good morning Peeps and a very happy Monday to you all!

Here is the card I made for my lovely friend Chris who celebrated her birthday yesterday. Hope you had a great day and lots of yummy goodies? I decided to use one of the stunning photographic images available at Magic Moonlight Free Images and you might think this made the whole cardmaking process much quicker but sadly not! I was fiddling around for ages trying to create some fabric flowers but it was worth the effort as I'm quite pleased with the result! The papers are Webster's Pages...... oh yes, I managed to get my mitts on some 6x6 pads from the US and they are sooooooo yummy! Look out for the card I'll be uploading tomorrow as the Webster's paper I've used on that is too scrummy for words!!



I added lots of bling and sparkle and punched shapes as you can see and my sentiment is part of a Greeting's Farm set. I've decided to enter this card into the SophistiCat Challenge where the theme is 'so distressing' and also the Creative Card Crew Challenge which has a theme of Vintage/Aged...... perfick!

Well that's all for today...... thank you so much for stopping by and have a great day ;o)

TTFN and TFL, hugs Tara xx
