Vintage Elements

Today's card has the colour combination featured on Create with Connie and Mary...Poppy Parade, So Saffron and Basic Grey.  I must say, I'm not really going to miss Poppy Parade when it leaves the palate at the end of May - I find it a funny sort of shade.  But, it does work well with the Saffron and Grey, so Thank You, Connie & Mary, for getting me to work outside my box!  The sketch for today is from Mojo Monday.

Remember there are only three days left of Sale-a-bration!  Visit my on-line store to place your orders before the end of day on Saturday, March 31.  And, if you've been humming and hawing about getting the Starter Kit, you can't miss this fanastic Sale-a-bration deal!  Pop me an e-mail and I'll help you with it.

It is a beautiful day here today, and I get to babysit Elliot while Grandpa helps Mom and Dad move into their new place.  Exciting!

I hope warm weather and the blessings of family move you through today.  Thanks for visiting!
Joan

I love the vintage look and feel of your card! The key trinket and postage stamp are the perfect touch! Thanks for playing the challenge at Create with Connie and Mary!

What a FABULOUS card Joan! I am one who will miss Poppy Parade...for me it is a fun color! I just can't do vintage to save my life and you made the colors work wonderfully with it! Thanks for playing along this week in the Create with Connie and Mary Thursday Challenge!

This is fabulous Joan! Funky and vintage...I love how the DSP looks like wallpaper and that you stamped your own background for those beautiful images. GREAT work...So glad you joined us at CCMC!

One thing I'm not good at is vintage. You did a great job especially incorporating these colors into a vintage-y card. Nice to see you at Create with Connie & Mary!
