Just Because I Care...



I seem to be stuck in a bit of a vintage mode lately and I'm enjoying it just the same. Today's card for Jen's sketch uses my two latest Papertrey Ink sets, Damask Designs and Guidelines 2. The sentiment is from a SU! hostess set which I believe is now retired. To draw your attention to the sentiment, since it seemed a bit small for the area, I added two buttons and a Martha Stewart punched bird. The embellishment area of the sketch is filled with my latest love, a button topped bow of black satin, tied with linen thread. Sponging all around adds to the vintage feel and then just to add a modern twist, I embossed the kraft layer with my SU! dots Texturz plate!



Be sure to check out the other SFYTT Divas, including Jen and her guest designer for April, Kimberly Crawford! If you find a little "me" time and get a chance to play along, use the keyword: SFYTT if you upload to Splitcoast.
