Vintage Beauty

Hope everyone is doing well on this cold day.
We're expecting more bad weather here again.  I am so ready for spring.
To get me in the mood for spring I decided to make a birthday card with some really pretty flowers.   I also decided a nice vintage look would be a nice change
I used this great sketch from From the Heart.
Cute sketch right?
Then I went to Catch the Bug and found this great color inspiration.
Perfect for a vintage look!
And this is what I came up with.
I used some fabulous papers from Karen Foster.
I backed them with some pretty tan linen paper from DCWV Linen Closet stack.
I just love the colors in this.
I used a really nice stamp from Bugaboo.
I added some cute little ivory flowers as a nice finishing touch.
