Vintage For You

This card was super quick and easy thanks to the help of a card kit. Why is it I don't think about colors at all until SU decides to yank them? I've fallen back in love with the softness of Barely Banana. Pairing it with black is so elegant. Oh well, maybe if I actually USED all my colors, I wouldn't feel they were neglected when they retire.

I'm not sure that I got this right. This card made me think of toile and soft happy colors. I thought it was another aspect of the 1920's, but maybe I'm thinking 1820's! LOL

My Creation
I had a heck of a time getting a good photo, so I scanned in a copy as well. The colors are truest in this pic than the next.
Here's the photo'd version showing the envelope I stamped to match.

Image Detail
I used spica pens on the flowers and leaves for some sparkle.
