Vintage Angel Card


I created several cards for my angel, Karen, this week. However, none of them seemed to be "right". I don't care if you create cards, scrapbook pages, jewelry or toilet paper, you know what I mean when i say nothing seemed "right". It usually takes me awhile to create anything from design to finish because I am always second guessing myself, but this was ridiculous!

I wanted to have it done yesterday, because tomorrow we are picking her up to go play bingo and it will be the first time I have seen her since she gave Glenn and I her wedding ring. So, the card pictured above is what I came up with... What do you think? Before you decide, here are a few more views.


This a closeup of the flowers that I made by layering Prima Flowers and adding a pearls to the centers.


And then this final picture is a close up of the tag that states "You Are". On the inside of the card I stamped the rest of the sentiment which states "Extraordinary". This could not be more true. She is most definitely an extraordinary woman. One does not meet woman like her often.

What I liked about the photo above is it really showed off how I painted on Crackle Accents to give the picture a subtle crackle effect. Love that stuff!

Wish us luck tomorrow at bingo. After last week we are going to need it. LOL!

Until Next Time... Take Care!

    Thanks for dropping by. I'm very exciting about being in a Noel Coward play. I've done lots of acting in the past but have only just started again after getting married and raising a family. xx

  2. I think its a beautiful card, of you did want to change it then perhaps move the bow to the other corner on the top but to be honest that is being very very picky. I think she will love it!

    Thanks for visiting my blog you are welcome any time.

  8. You'll know when it's done! I understand completely, though. Sometimes I just let something 'sit' for a few days to make sure everything is in order!
    Great blog (you're a natural). You are very talented!
    Thanks for coming by to see me, too. I'll be going out to get that velvet dress soon!

    Good to meet you, Bloggerette Sister! Hope we get to know each other better over time.

    You live in a beautiful state. I'm in Colorado.

  15. Hi Sherry!
    Welcome to the Sorority! Thanks for visiting Brynwood and leaving a comment for me. In answer to your question, I purchase a washable fabric that can be run through my inkjet printer. I do the layouts myself in a Print Shop program. I get the fabric from Blick Art Supply, but there is also a great washable cotton fabric you can purchase at quilt shops, or Joann Fabric. Hope this helps. Let me know if you need more info.
    Looking forward to getting to know you better.
    xoxo

  16. Hi, Sherry...It's Margaret, from the Rusty Plum. I guess you can't get to the comments on my blog, for some reason, if you click from the tab at the beginning of the blog. You will have to go to the blog archive on the right hand column and click on "6/13 - 6/20" to find the post for the giveaway, if you click on it there, the comments will show up and you will be able to leave one, as well. Technology...Sorry, this has become such a hassle!

  22. Hi, Sherry! Thanks for visiting my blog @ cherischatter. Would you believe I just looked at your blog last night after seeing it mentioned or listed on someone else's. Then today you had a message for me. I'm relatively new to blogging too but I have thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm sure you will too. You are so talented and creative! I keep hoping some of you will rub off on me!!! Loved your post about your "angel."
