A Vintage Mother's Day Creation

The Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog issued a challenge to create a Vintage Mother's Day card this week. Mother's Day has passed and time for entering the challenge has just about run out, but I did make a card for the challenge.
This image is among some of the wonderful new images Christy has put in her Tiddly Inks Store in the last couple of weeks as part of Tiddly Inks 1 Year Birthday(GO TIDDLY INKS!!!). Her name is Bev and she looks pretty old fashioned and vintage to me with her sweet jumper. I paper pieced her dress and finished her off with my Copics.

The papers are all from a digital kit from Raspberry Road Designs, and the kit is called Vintage Girls. It also has a vintage doll print that's really neat. The lace is from my stash and the butterfly punch is something I created with MTC, and finished off by coloring the insides of the butterflies with my pink and gold Spicas. Just in case it didn't look vintage enough, I sponged on some Distress Inks to everything on the card.LOL

Now tomorrow there's going to be a Puzzle challenge, so you're going to want to be sure and check back in on the Challenge Blog for a chance at some gift certificates.
