VINTAGE NOTECARD

Here is one of a set of notecards I am making - kinda' shabby chic/vintage style. 




I made the background with distress inks on glossy paper and stamped over it with a darling stamp from Lost Coast Designs.  Then I added some collage elements (heart and butterfly) from Lisa's Altered Art.  This was layered to a square paper doily and a ribbon and copper brad were attached to the left side.  I also edged card with a Pilot gold metallic pen. 

I love how soft the colors are on this card; but the scan makes the colors look a bit deeper than IRL!!

Thanks to Lynn Stevens, I am entering this in the Simon Says challenge for their "wings" theme. 

Thanks for visiting!

She is so beautiful! I, too, love the soft monochromatic colors. I think it adds to her drama. Thanks so much for playing along with us at Simon Says Stamp & Show!
