A bit Vintage!

Good morning!!

Something very different to show you today - NO OWLS!!! I have gone a bit vintage!!!! My lovely friend Jo sent me a gorgeous vintagey birthday card earlier this month and I have based it on my design for 2 of my fab downlines birthdays. Last Sunday my downline Sarah celebrated her birthday (swell as her engagement too - how cool!) and today is my downline Lisa's birthday too. Happy Birthday girls, hope you had a fab time!!

Time constraints meant I had to make them both the same card, just obviously changed the initial!!

The colour combo is Always Artichoke, Baja Breeze, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake. LOts of inking and a little bit of distressing too!!

The background is the Very Vintage wheel stamped in Crumb Cake. Papers are from Springtime Vintage
The flower is made using the 5 petal flower punch and the leaves are from the Bird Punch.
Here is Lisa's, some parts differed slightly as I played about with the design.

And here is the card from my lovely friend Jo that inspired me! Thank you Jo! x

Will be back tomorrow with more cards for you from last night's card club. As usual we had good fun at our club - it was People's Choice last night, I let the ladies choose the stamp sets we used!!
