Just Us Girls Challenge #15

Just for the fun of it, I colored up this sweet Tilda image from Magnolia and paired it with this new Vintage Valentine paper from Fancy Pants. I have no idea why they call this paper Vintage Valentine. Yes, it's vintage but nothing about it is Valentine-related, in my opinion. LOL But it is pretty paper, so I had to play a little.


While I was working on this, I decided if I added a little stitching to the card it would qualify for the JUGS challenge this week, so I adhered my designer paper to the peach-colored cardstock base and stitched all around the border. I added a few dew drops colored with Copics, a double-loop punched border, and a pretty satin bow to finish off this card. Later I found this fabulous crocheted flower with button that I got from Julie Masse so I added it, too! The perfect finishing touch!

Thanks for stopping by, and leaving me some love! Your comments mean so much to me!

Have a great day!

Very pretty card Tammy (as usual!). Your coloring is beautiful and I agree with you in regards to the paper - it's very pretty , but not very "valentiny". Have a great day!
