It's beginning to look alot like....

Hi there and happy Wednesday! If you live on the east coast like I do, I bet you are just as happy as I am about the Nor'Easter about to hit.....NOT!! I am grateful for the last couple of days of sunshine. Haven't seen it in what seems like eons!

Ok, now that we've talked about the weather, on to crafty things! This card I made using Retro Sketches #36.

and the inside:

Here is the sketch:

I took a postcard from a set of them by Webster's Pages and fussy cut the flowers/leaves. It's my artsy-fartsy version of the scallop element in the sketch. The beige panel under the ornament was die cut using the vertical greetings Die-Namics from MFT. I trimmed both sides then embossed and distressed it with Chestnut Roan ink by Clear Snap. The ornament was die cut using my Slice machine. I like the vintage Victorian feel to this card!

Thanks for stopping by! Have a great rest of the day!

Chris ☺

Beautiful card! I love how you followed the sketch but also added your own little changes.

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
