Vintage Friendship

Bold & bright, cheery colors always perk me up on a cold wintry day, so I picked out a few of my favorite colors (Rich Razzleberry, Melon Mambo, Pumpkin Pie and Summer Sun) and paired them with a couple of my favorite stamp sets to create this card.
I used the sketch featured as this weeks challenge at Stamp Something. I also gave myself a little challenge of my own as I reached for my patterned papers...use only my stamps and ink to create my own patterned paper. The pretty stamps included in the new Vintage Vogue set from the Occasions mini made that challenge pretty simple. The bird image is from the Level 2 Hostess Set Wings of Friendship. I used a Summer Sun Corduroy Button and a bit of Crystal Effects over punched 1/4" circles of card stock for the centers of the flowers.

Working with these colors and stamps this afternoon helped warm up my cold, wintry day. Enjoy your day!
