This was a fun one, I must say. On that note, I started out with a different vision altogether. My memory was going to be of my most treasured trip to Paris. Somehow I ended up here. I guess the only explanation is that it is my Mothers birthday today, I wore these colors to work on Tuesday when I made the card and that must have dictated the end result. So, instead of my original intent, I am sharing a birthday card for my Mom. I grew up going antiquing, loved anything vintage and still do. I think most of my inspiration came from that. The spellbinders curved rectangles dies even look vintage to me. So, here’s what I used:
Stamps: Flourish Background 462, Screen Background 452, Girls Sleeping 2010-01 SO, Happy Memories Text 824 SO
Paper: Prism Simply Smooth Ivory, Island Mist Dark, Island Mist Light
Ink: Distress Tea Dye, Walnut Stain, Broken China, Brown Marker
Accessories: Ribbon, Foam Dimensional Tape, Corner embellishment, Spellbinders Curved Rectangle Dies, Heat Gun, Sponges, Mini Misters.
So anyway, my card today is in honor of my Mother, antiquing and memories in general.
