Enjoy The Journey

This card is for 5 Challenges so I started out with several premises in my mind. I'm not usually a big fan of Toile fabric or paper, but this pattern from The Paper Studio really caught my eye. I guess it's the soft sages, sepias, and cherries that are pleasing to my eye. I used some of the new Log Cabin Smooch Spritz on the fern leaves for just a very subtle little bit of sparkle. I used 2 Martha Stewart punches: fern, and lacy border.  I stamped the sentiment with sepia and clear embossed it for a nice pop. All in all, I think this is one of the prettiest vintage cards I have made so far and I can almost hear a little anniversary conversation as the couple takes an evening stroll through this lovely grove.
Supplies: Card Blank 5 1/4" X 7 1/4" The Paper Company, Papers: The Paper Studio-Mirabella, Stampin Up-Very Vanilla, Stamp: Pink Paislee-365 Degrees, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Sepia, Stampin Up clear embossing powder, Martha Stewart punches: fern, lacy border punch, Stampin Up-Log Cabin Smooch Spritz, flower unknown, Tim Holtz distress tool, sewing machine, pop dots.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥
