Vintage Cameo

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. We have had such beautiful springtime weather here. A few cold nights in the beginning of the week but that is over and we are back to having the windows open through the night.

We were supposed to go to Virginia and visit my BFF this weekend but our plans have changed.  Since we couldn't go in person, I thought I would send a card in my place for now.

I have a few things to take care of here at home. So it will be put off for a little bit. But, I have talked to her several times since they have moved. She is getting settled in her new home and enjoying the closeness of being with family. 

Now onto my card for today. This one I created for my Friday post on the Great Impressions Blog. I was after a vintage look and I thought the stamps plus the embossing folder helped me achieve that look. I used the lace frame H212, cameo C414, and little hello B151. I also really like the turquoise and black color combo. 

I stamped my frame and cameo in black ink and then wet embossed for a more dramatic look. My sentiment was stamped and I used the Stampin-Up oval punch. Added some black lace and a bow with a button center to complete my card.

Well, that's it for me for today so until next time........God bless.

I am also entering:
