Very Vintage Birthday Card

Today’s project was inspired by one in the catalogue on page 226, my version is much simpler and perfect for when you need a quick floral themed birthday card.

The Very Vintage stamp set is a hostess set so only available with orders over £150.00 but its one to consider adding to your stash as it has a lovely mix of sentiments and images. I chose to work with the two largest elements to make my card.

I created a tone on tone background with Old Olive cardstock and ink and the lace doily image. I love the distressed vintage feel of this image I think its made a great background for this card.

A little colouring with the watercolour pencils and the blender created the focal point for this card and really reminds me of some china which my grandma used to have, if anyone’s in the UK and knows what I’m on about I’d love to know the name of the china?

I finished the card off with a simple Happy Birthday banner created from the Birthday Banners stamp set and Bunch of Banners Framelits.

Which do you prefer the catalogue version or my simplified version?
