A Vintage Summer Garden


Hi friends, so happy to have you coming by to see my latest design.  This is for this week's new Frilly and Funkie challenge.  Terry is our hostess this week and her challenge is to create something that depicts summertime.  I chose to use my gorgeous new Pion Design paper Vintage Garden.  All of the designer paper plus the lovely vintage image used here come from that collection.  I just cut out the vintage image and then used the Tim Holtz Torn Notebook On the Edge die to cut the top.  I also used the Butterflight On the Edge die to cut the piece of designer paper.

My handmade flowers were made using the tattered Florals die plus a few cuts from the Tattered Flowers Decorative Strip die, some card stock cuts and a couple cut out of crinoline.  For the file label sentiment, I used the Tiny Tabs and Tags die to cut it and then added a quick Chit Chat sticker.

Below you will find the products available at The Funkie Junkie Boutique that were used for this card.

Your card is so wonderfully feminine Terry. Love the way you have put the gauze in the background, it is so soft and delicate looking - that on the edge torn pages die is now a must have! Really beautiful work. Hugs, Anne x

Absolutely lovely, Linda - such a wonderful idea to use the notebook die across the top of that delicious image. And your layered elements look stunning - especially the stripy butterflies - one of your absolute best!
