vintage primose

Happy Monday and thanks for taking the time to visit the charmed life blog.

We had another day of sunshine here and our temps were around 50. Oh, spring is so on the way!!

In a few weeks, I will see the sprouts from the tulips and daffodils. This reminds me of the words from Song of Solomon 2:11

See! The winter is past; the rains are over and gone.

In this case I can insert snow.

We are on our way to Aidin's basketball game. They live north of us but tonight the game is in the South which is where we live. So not so much traveling for us for a change.
I wanted to get my post finished before we left.

Today, my card is for 2 challenges:
1. The Monday technique lovers challenge on splitcoaststampers is "very vintage".
I don't really have any vintage stamps so I created my vintage card using elements instead. I love the paper from graphic 45. This one is from the fashionista collection-le fleur.

My image is from a Lang calendar from 2008.
The primrose is from the drawings of Ellen Stouffer.
I thought it looked vintage and it went well with my designer paper. I added some lace and the ribbon is stampin-up ribbon originals so saffron shade.

2. My second challenge is from Saturday's our creative corner . This week it was a sketch challenge provided by Silke Ledlow. It was a perfect layout for my vintage card.

Well my friends it's time to wrap this post up. See you next time in charmed life land.

card recipe:
paper: su riding hood red, so saffron, graphic 45 fashionista collection
accessories: lace, su ribbon
