Bright and Vintage Florals

Wooo Hooo it's Friday - and not a bit like spring!!!!! Gusting winds, rain/snow and my daughter is totally unimpressed with this weather for her 19th birthday.

This adorable little baby dress is the Fabulous Friday Freebie this week over at Sugar Creek Hollow today. The colour scheme of Plum, Lavender and Cream is from the Play Date Cafe. I coloured some cream flowers with the plum and lavender so they would co-ordinate and I finally was able to use one of these chipboard buttons with vintage photos on them. This little baby just looked like she would be ready to wear this dress anytime. I can see now though, that I need some more practice working with this border punch!!!! A bit slanted at the top!

Take a stop over at the other SCH DT members to see what new creations they have for you today.

This second card uses the sneak peak stamp set from StampinUp! "Awash with Flowers". I took the sketch from this week's sketch at Lord Have Mercy!

I hope you are working your way into a great weekend....Allison is spending the evening with a whole whack of her friends at the West Edmonton Mall Water Park. Tomorrow night my son's band is playing so we'll all be going to that. Keep everyone out of trouble I suppose.

Thanks for stopping by!!!
Have a great Friday
Joan

Wow, Joan, what a great job you have done with the child's dress. I think it was inspired to use that vintage photo button. I don't have any of those, but you have given me an idea...

Love the colors too. Hope you have a great weekend!

Hugs,
Linda

Wow you've been busy! The border looks fine, and the flowers layered over the edge draw the eye away from it anyway. The whole thing feels soft and feminie and nostalgic.
