Today's sketch inspired me to create a card for a friend who recently helped me "big time". I wanted her to know what her act of kindness meant to me.
I knew I wanted to do something in the vintage/
shaby chic theme because she loves that. I found that todays challenge worked well with what I had been thinking about. I hope I didn't cheat too much by playing outside the box and it's not really very CAS but...it's perfect for my dear friend!
I stamped my images from Vintage Vogue directly on SU's Le Jardin dsp and then embossed it (a new idea I recently learned from my demo; thanks Heather!). I also cut a few flowers and leaves from the same paper to create my little pop-up flower. Stamped the bg with SU's French Script and added the lace. I did pop the panels with dimensionals...I thought it needed that so the Friends cut out would stand out more.
That's my story for today! Hope you like what you see and look forward to your comments. Happy Hump Day!! TFL
