Merry Monday 124:


Good morning all!!  Happy Labour Day!  I hope you have been enjoying your long weekend.  If you don't have a long weekend, well I hope you are just enjoying your Monday =)

This week at Merry Monday, I have chosen the theme of using a gift/present on your card.


I have been trying to challenge myself with different styles of cards.  Today is shabby/vintage.

I saw this little girl vintage image and knew I just had to use it for this challenge (no link, but email me if you would like this image).  I inked, distressed, and tore all the paper edges;  this takes rather a lot of time, but worth it in the end!  I added some Wild Orchid flowers and gold crown pins, and finished it off with a Paper Smooches sentiment.

2014 Christmas Card Count =33 (otherwise I forget)





I would like to add this card to the following challenge:
jingle belles - Baby, it's GOLD outside (use gold)



As always, don't forget to check out the rest of my teamies super fantastic creations at Merry Monday.

What a sweet image. It looks great with the shabby chic layers. And the modern font of the sentiment is a nice contrast!
