This Is the Life!


One more card to share with you today! This one is for the current challenge over at Our Creative Corner where the theme is "Captured Memories." Our project must include a photograph on it.  I received the photograph image above with a recent order from Red Lead and thought it was a wonderful starting point to create a card for the challenge.  I matted the image with a piece of white card stock that was stenciled with a Wendy Vecchi stencil.  The collage images were stamped with Timber Brown StazOn Ink over the card front and water colored with Distress Markers.  The tickets, also by Red Lead, were stamped, water colored and added with dimensional foam dots. Snippets of seam binding, cheese cloth, twine, some metal shell charms, a wood word disc and bottle filled with sand completes my card.  We are celebrating my youngest daughter's birthday this weekend and have chosen this card as her birthday card.  I hope she likes it.  Thanks for dropping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne

I really love the vintage style and I'm so impressed by the fantastic look of the background you've created, and the fact that you've made it yourself, without any use of DPs. Gorgeous!
