Greetings! It is a beautiful, finally, spring day here in my part of the world and I hope it is for you too, wherever you might be! My post today is for the current challenge over at Frilly and Funkie where the theme is "A Time for Weddings" and we are asked to make a card with white and one other color. Assuming black is a neutral, the only other color besides antique white on my card is the pink flowers in the frame. Hopefully, this works for the criteria!
A little bit about the background of creating my card. My dear husband recently decided to retire! He had been battling a major health concern these past ten years and it is just time for he and me to move on to the next phase of our lives. We plan to downsize and are in the process of getting our home ready to sell. I am pretty much breaking down my art studio, and only keeping out my essentials. The rest of the items are being boxed up for wherever my new art studio will be or are being given away to friends who are just getting started in this wonderful world of art. As I was boxing things up, I came across this gorgeous sticker by Penny Black. I also found this near perfect length of pearls and lace. Before I knew it, my card just came together. The edges were distressed with Antique Linen Distress Ink and Idea-ology ChitChat Stickers were added to the card front along with a length of lace, some Tim Holtz Tissue Tape, a paper heart by Martha Stewart and a few vintage buttons. It is not often that I make a card without some stamping on it, but here is one of those times! Have a lovely weekend. Hugs, Yvonne
