Vintagey Birthday Girl......

Good Afternoon.
Now that it took me all morning to try and get this
card edited and on here I don't have time to write a post!!! haha
I have made this card for 2 challenges.
The sketch was made by Carole for Friday Sketchers
and it was such a joy to work with! (Thanks Carole!)
I also used Vintage and flowers for the challenge at


I just adore this image! It is a new one from Elizabeth Bell for
SCACD and it is called New Friends
AND to let you know Susanna's service is tops! I ordered it Friday
afternoon and it was here by Monday!! (Thanks so much!)

Anyways this was colored with Distress inks and twinkling h20's
paper is K and Co., lace is from JoAnn's and flowers
are from Prima and Magnolia.

Thanks so much for stopping by today! I hope you are all safe
and have a wonderful day! I am off to the grocery store!!
YIPPEE!!! Not my favorite thing to do!! haha

Hi Kathy,
You have done so many lovely cards lately. I liked this especially, vintage feeling is sooo beautiful :)
I have been struggling with lack of time lately. No blog hopping for a long time all the free time goes to card making. Maybe after couple of weeks it will ease...
Hugs,
Aija
