To save time I scanned this card rather than photograph it, but it still looks accurate to color and form. The image is a vintage print from Dover Publications. If you haven't explored this resource you are missing out on a huge variety of possibilities. On Fridays they send out a newsletter featuring their publications and providing downloadable images that are samples from their books. Check it out!
Back to the card: I used shades of green chalk to highlight the tree and grass on the image. Then a sampling of my own stash of scrapbook paper for the backgrounds, using my Nestibilities. Topping it off with a black ribbon bow and three buttons from Making Memories Black Tie collection.
Thank you for stopping by! Please be sure to come back tomorrow at 10:00 for the Busy Beauties Blog Hop. It starts right here! I look forward to spending lots of time with you all in 2010.
