Greetings on this marvelous Monday, Stampers! I am happy to report that my DH will be released from the hospital this morning, ahead of schedule as he is doing so well. Yay! That's enough to put me in a good mood for the rest of the day!
I created this project for two challenges, the first being the color challenge at Dynamic Duos. The colors in the retired Fan Fair DSP were perfect for this challenge. I was originally planning on using the Stippled Blossom stamp set, but the blossoms looked kind of washed out in Pink Pirouette and Sahara Sand. I eventually decided on using Clay Blossoms instead, and I colored them just a bit with Pink Pirouette ink and a cotton swab.
I was all over the layout at Retro Sketches as soon as I saw it. Flowers and doilies and buttons, oh my! You must check out the creations by Lisa who created the sketch. Fabulous and so inspiring!
OK, I know I went a little crazy with the embellishments here, but hey, why not? I thought they all looked so pretty together on my collage style vintage card! Scroll down to the supply list to see what all the little goodies are.
