Thank Heaven for Little Girls

Hello!  I want to share another card that I made for the challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show where the theme is Hey Girl!  I selected this image by Art Declassified, stamped in Wild Honey Distress Ink on Specialty Paper and mounted it to a torn edge, crumpled and flattened mulberry colored background paper.  The matted image was added to a mulberry card base and honey colored background paper.  The sentiment, by Stampsmith, was stamped with Seedless Preserves Distress Ink and fits the challenge perfectly as little girls grown bigger everyday! Simple embellishments include a gift of hand dyed lace from The Funkie Junkie Boutique, Butterscotch Liquid Pearls, vintage buttons and seam binding and a die cut vine using upcycled craft paper that was mottled with Picket Fence Distress Stain.  Thank you so much for stopping by.  Best wishes, Yvonne

Yvonne....this is such a lovely vintage style card. I so love the rich, deep colors and that beautifully distressed lace and pearl embellishment. That is so sweet, feminine and a perfect touch. That torn red paper, the red bow and the red sentiment look amazing! Thanks for sharing your lovely card with us at Simon Says Stamp and Show. <3 Candy
