A Vintage Flower Child! :)

Coffee of the Day - Pumpkin Spice (probably every day as long as I can find it in the stores!)

When I say the phrase, 'flower child', I am betting that this most precious image is NOT what first arrives into your head! giggles! But when Paulette of Create with TLC sent this to me, that is one of the first things I thought of. y'all know I am goofy like that! ;)

For an entire month, I am priviliged to be a guest designer for TLC for Paulette's vintage line. you know how right up my alley that is! and boy, was I ever excited when I received the news! I simply adore the little flower children images, so was tickled to get this one to start the journey! It comes with the matching sentiment, which I have turned into a tag.

I used one of my fave ever techniques on the main image, cracked glass. I realized it had been way too long since I had last played around with this. I added some highlights with my gold glitter pen to the flower stamens and also sponged gold ink over the entire piece prior to layering on the glassy glaze ep. The gorgeous Webster's Pages papers have been sprayed with frost shimmer spray. The card base is edged in vanilla craft, and then sponged with same vanilla then gold ink. I love this May Arts vintage looking ribbon with the gold edging. it really helps dress up the violet stitched ribbon, which was the only ribbon I had that matched the cs (of course with SU! it ALWAYS matches! grins!)

have a most wondrous day! love to you all! :)

FABULOUS! I love the image and the crackled treatment. Is that a button or a charm? Whichever, it is a terrific addition.

Total vintage yumminess, Jennifer! Everything about this little gem is perfect - love the colors and embellies and the cracked glass technique is so perfect for that image.

Congrats on being a guest designer for Create with TLC. I just recently discovered that company - haven't used any digis yet, but definitely will as soon as I can find time!
