Pinks and Greens...

Those seem to be the "go to" colors for my mojo lately, so I just go with it. Here are a couple of the cards I worked on this weekend.

This first card is true to the vintage shabby chic inspiration of that sweet Crafty Secrets image of the two little girls sharing a secret. I'm thinking it might even make a fun thank you card for a friend.  I used the Papertrey Ink Seed Packet Frame die as a frame for the image.

Patterned Papers: Graphic 45 Once Upon a Springtime Collection (pinks),
Echo Park For the Record/Fabric Store (green)
Seed packet frame die and stamp: Papertrey Ink    Vintage Image: Crafty Secrets "Vintage Photos"
Sentiment Stamps: Technique Tuesday/Ali Edwards ("you are the best"), Papertrey Ink ("my sweet friend")
Laces: Etsy    Mini Rose: Prima    Pearls: Recollections & Kaiser Craft    Hug Snug Seam Binding

This next card is for my personal stash. I prefer to have birthday cards ready to go, mainly because I have a tendency to ignore the notes I leave myself about upcoming birthdays, and then have to rush to make sure I have a card in the mail in time to make the special day! :)

I used a Lettering Delights frame svg (Oblong Frames No 9) for the shape for this card, and used Make the Cut to turn it into a card base with the slots and a corresponding solid card base as a liner. The vintage pharmacy label was a free download from The Vintage Workshop blog . 

Patterned Paper: Imaginisce    Vintage Label: The Vintage Workshop blog
Laces: Etsy and local craft store    Mini paper rose and leaves: Prima

Back to the pinks and greens...and blues...and oranges...and more.
