Remember When...

Hi, I hope everyone had a great weekend...I had lots of scrapping time to make lo's and cards. :)
Here is my card this week using a fabulous sketch from Verve #2 VLVFeb2012. Here is the sketch.


Here is my interpretation of the sketch....so originally I was going to use 2 ribbon pieces but then I wanted to put my title to my card there....so that is how the extra pieces of ribbon ended up on my card. I also have had this flower for a long time and every time i placed it on something it just was too much....it finally was used to make this card complete!
The papers are from K and company and I have had them for a long time too! They really are beautiful for a vintage theme....as for the colors....oh my! I used red! It is my totally favorite color too! Although I don't use it much? lol


I added little bling on the corners, you have to have those old antique pearls for vintage right?

A close-up of the flower...I used 2 different spellbinders and placed a piece of red matching paper between. I glue lace around the back and a double tied ribbon with the flower on top...
Lots and lots of distressing paper gave this vintage card the look i wanted.

Thanks for stopping by....this card reminds me of grandma's old kitchen.... :)
