Celebrate!

Greetings! It's time for the Pink Team to step to the front over at Eclectic Ellapu with a new challenge.  Our theme this time around is "The Oldies, Happy Birthday."  If you read my other post for today, you know that I am somewhat without craft supplies!  This is a wonderful theme, but I was not able to do it the justice it deserves, though I truly tried to find images that would work.  My Design Team sisters have hit the nail on the head though, so I hope you will take a look at their inspiration pieces.  I have chosen this gorgeous image by Hero Arts.  Though the women are not old, they would be today, so please work with me on this one!  The sentiment is by Stamping Up.  (I found it out in our storage unit, which is filled with craft gear that I can live without while we are in transition.) Some wood banner pieces and scraps of card stock add a festive touch at the top of my card.  Vintage Photo Distress Ink subdues the bright white card stock.  Thanks so much for dropping by today.  Hugs, Yvonne

Hi, Yvonne! I don't think you have to worry about your ladies being "old," as it is conveyed in that it is a vintage stamp. I can't believe you created this with only "minimal" supplies, 'cause I just love it!

Awesome card, Yvonne! I love the banner and the little hat. I have such a hard time doing birthday cards. So I really admire yours. Yours is awesome. I also like the border stamp at the bottom. It's so simple, but it adds so much. Great design!

I think you're a magician - stretching your limited supplies, making them work for every challenge! I think this is perfect with the "oldies themed". It's a wonderful, vintage design!
