I made this card for my youngest daughter, the mother of my grandchildren.
The image has special meaning as my granddaughter bought a box of vintage and old fashioned cards for 50 cents at a garage sale. She has plans to upcycle the images. They are that lovely old fashioned paper...the kind that has a bit of texture to the paper and yet has no sheen...a lovely flat, slightly linen type paper. She carefully carried the box into my house, and we sat down and looked through them together. She thoughtfully chose this card to give me for my stash...what a little sweetie!
She was so happy to give me this image to use and is looking forward to seeing what I made with it. She is 7 years old and is a card maker herself, so knows the joy of a unique image!
I added a few green diamonds to the flower centres and a teensy miniature 3D butterfly and ladybug.
The green filigree look in the orders as a spellbinder die that was torn, so I cut it apart and slid it between the layers for a little corner detail.
****************This is card 39 of 50. I have been on a consumables spending freeze until I made 50 cards (Sook Wang tape and heavy weight card stock exempt).***************
