WISHING YOU A DAY TO REMEMBER

This is another vintage collage image from Free Vintage Digital Stamps (click here to download the free digi).  I am just on a roll at the moment with these stunning vintage images (and that for free) from Free Vintage Digital Stamps.  This is one I thought would be perfect for a 'man' creation and this is what I came up with.  Hope you approve.

All the papers are from Fabscraps and just worked so well with this blue and a hint of green colour combo.  My dry chalks were put to use to shade the image itself.  The lollipops and tags (clipped onto the image) were made with EK Success and Upikit circle punches.  Still love using punches to create embellishments with.  And take a closer look, I actually used a needle and thread to finish off the buttons. Now my friends and family near and ear to me will know that I am totally allergic to a needle - talking about out of your comfort zone.  Sketch no.10-21-09 from Lets Scrap was used to get the mojo started.

Above:  As you can see I have tried a new card design.  Just love this different kind of easel card (it measures 18x15cm / 6"x7").  It displays so nicely and this card will fit into a C5 envelope.  I did not take a pic of the back, but I have also finished it off so that one can just add the message onto it.



Below is free digi image of the sentiment.  Just click on it and then right click and save it to your computer.  Would love to hear from you if you use the digis on this post.


Once again I would like to try my hand it the following challenges with this creation:
Thank you all my lovely blogger buddies for once again taking the time to pop in here.  Your comments are always so uplifting.  Wishing you all a wonderfully relaxed weekend.

  2. hi Desire,

    I just love this card that you have made, it's just perfect. The vintage images are just fantastic and what a bonus to get them for free. You really have gone out of your comfort zone with this card, hopefully you have got over your aversion to a needle and thread as it has worked wonders on your card.

    Thanks so much for entering yet another beautiful card at Anything goes, Just keep on creating.

  3. Glad you are not so afraid of needles - ha ha ha. Lovely card as always Desire. I will have to get started on some cards and use the lovely sentiments you are giving away for free.

    Have a great week-end.

  4. Another absolutely stunning card, Desire! I am going to check out the free digi images you mentioned. I have never done any digi scrapping or cardmaking, but maybe its time for me to try! I do have to mentioned, however, that I am disappointed that you didn't give the Let's Scrap website credit for the sketch you used for your card.
