Vintage Kindness

For people who pop by here a lot, it'll come as no surprise that I love SCS. When an ebbing mojo is annoying the bejeezers out of me...I can pop by here and marvel in the creative juices of others. Now (again) this is another Vintage Vogue card, but it was sent to a dear friend....Andrea....who in her own right inspires me not only with her creativity, but also her ability to cope with all my quirky comments!!!! She (amongst all the other trials and tribulations that life throws at all of us) hit a speed hump with an injury to her hubby. I felt the sentiment of this card was very appropriate. it was a direct CASE from this card. I however do not posess Groovy (or as some have called it Gruesome) Guava and I know Andrea is a fan of pink. So here is my version.

Here are some close ups of the flowers with clear crystal centres and raised on Dimensionals.

The hardest thing was to line up the leaves that were stamped on the card to line up with the flowers. In fairness...I also broke out the pearls and used those too. I have left the sentiment off this I can get it out and use it as needed.

Gives it a totally different feel don't you think?? Bargain find...the pearl in the large flower.....I found in the Reject Shop.....12 of them for $ cool is that???? of course I did not just get 1 I have them in a couple of colours, pastel and bold.

The card did the trick for Andrea...and made her smile. It's always nice to make someone feel better...don't you think?

Catch you next time.
