HYCCT1327 Thinking of You

Happy Monday all!  I’m back to auto-posting again.  Today I have my card for the Honor Your Elders challenge from HYCCT.  There was a bonus of using gold or vintage.  I made this with my Grandma in mind.  She raised 8 kids and assisted with many of us grandkids and great-grandkids.  She is quite amazing — quite funny and spunky, very stubborn,  and loved by many.

I pulled out this treasure chest image from The Paper Shelter.  After coloring the image, I cut it out with Labels 18 and sponged lightly with Distress Ink Antique Linen to keep the white card stock from clashing with the more vintage-y colors.  On the sides of the trunk, I added Liquid Pearls in Bisque to the knobs.   The hats have glittery bows.  The papers are from Bo Bunny Ambrosia, which were perfect for the vintage feel.  They are matched up with Soft Suede from SU — it’s a color I’ve had for years and never used.  A simple sentiment from PTI Everyday Classics finished it off.

  1. A beautiful card. Love what you have done with the image and great design and layout. Love the line around the edge, it really makes it pop. (may have to steel that idea 🙂 )
    Thanks for joining in with our 'For Someone Special' challenge at The Paper Shelter this week, and good luck
