The very first thing you need to know about this card is that I did not color it (I wish I could!). This is a scan of the cover of a stationery pad that's been in the attic with DSD's "stuff" for twenty years! I knew when I found it I would use it for a card someday. And while this is definitely not my day to get good photos, it isn't out of focus - it's printed on vellum.
I flipped the scanned image so it would print correctly on the back side of the vellum. It's attached to the card base with Scrappy Tape at top and bottom.
This almost seems like cheating, but this really is just gorgeous IRL, so I'm going for it!
L - Layer, lavender (the color)
O - Orange
V - Vellum, violet (the color)
E - Edge treatment
As always, thanks for looking!

Gorgeous! (Whether you colored it or not!) I am a big fan of repurposing beautiful things like this! Just beautiful - especially love it mixed with the plaid! Thanks for playing our challenge! Happy Love Fest!

that is really pretty and more important it's good to know that I'm not the only person with stuff in the attic for over 20 years (technically it's moved to the garage).
Congrats on winning the year of fan club membership!
