I haven't made anything vintage in a long time and when I saw Linda Payne's post this morning for Sugar Creek Hollow, I knew I wanted to play along and make a vintage Easter card. I got my image from Bumble Button and created the sentiment in MS Word. Couldn't figure out how to change the color (I wish the green were a bit lighter) but I was able to add just a hint of the little girl's dress color to it. I used a bit of a doily distressed with inks on the image and added lace to the background panel from a paper pack by Glitz, French Kiss. The metal butterfly embellishment is sitting on a mother of pearl button that came from my mother's button jar. I added distress inks to the butterfly to tone down the shine of the metal.
I'd also like to enter this card into the Pink Gem challenge to make an Easter/Spring card and into Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge to use green.
We're experiencing quite a bit of wind this afternoon. Wish we had a wind turbine as well as solar panels for generating electricity!!
