This card is for a particular friend who has recently gone so far above and beyond for me. I asked her to simply "point me in a direction" and she made phone calls, did research and gathered materials! Her own cards tend toward vintage collage. I don't have the talent nor the supplies for that style, so I tried to base the card in my own fairly simple style but by adding a text background and some sponging on the edges, I think it takes on a vintage look.
I added a little golden shimmer on the main image and the red panel and the flower centers use a sticker that is full of glitter!
I used this week's sketch from Freshly Made Sketches.
