I LOVE today's website for the Inspiration Challenge, it's prayer journals! HERE is the journal which inspired me, I know my card is vintage rather than modern, but the colours were so perfect with this paper that I have (linen texture from the Irish vintage/retro store Avoca). I'm a huge fan of of vintage script style typography, so the handwriting on this really appeals to me. I sponged the leaves and heart with a bit of ink to tone down the hues and arranged all the die-cuts and flowers on a burlap circle. The roses have also been sponged with ink to match the hues in the paper. Because there's a lot going on, there's no sentiment - here's what I think it says anyway:
Spring is on the way!!!

gorgeous Bridget...love your vintage, beauty style. We are having a wicked snow storm with drifting snow..yuk! You card does remind me that Spring will come...long time down the road for me. I love your use of the burlap too...I bought some but have not come up with a plan to use it yet.

Your card is EXQUISITE! FYI: You always inspire me to pull out my pretty papers (and sewing machine) because I just don't play with them enough! This goes straight to my favs! Thank you for always being so inspiring!
