Vintage rose inchies

I got this award for this card! Thank you so much!

The card is for the MMSC # 44 - sketch and for DSCB #6 - inchies. It will also be for Simon Says Challenge - Mothers day/girly. Simon Says has passed 300 entries this week and is going for 400. That is soo cool!
It is also for Cupcake craft challenge # 81 - Flower Power

We got a new computersystem at work to day.... I guess you all can feel the frustration ooozing out of me, just by writing about it.... It will be ok, and it will be better than the one we had, but when you have to learn at the same time as you are dealing with customers, and have to know what you are doing to be able to help the same customer, well then my heads gets a bit warm. I also desperatly need a new computermous at work, my arms are killing me.

So enough of the whining already! This card started out as a pink/purple/white card. Light and easy and with a summerfeel. I had it all planned out and all the pieces cut out. But then I had to find the centerimage, and it had to be one that I could divide into inches (for the DSCB challenge, so I tried one image after another and it was just not right - until I found this one. It was perfect.

So I started to color it, and when I was done with that, it did no longer fit onto a pink/purple/white card. So then the pink/purple and white went back to live in the forgotten-drawers and I found this light brown vintagelooking paper with handwritings on - and well then it was set - I was going vintage - again!

The image is from Impression Obession, and it is divided into small squares, so I just cut them out, and puzzeled the image back togheter using foamdots.

Thank you so much for stopping by. Have a nice day!

Gunn, your card is just stunning. It looks like something you would find pressed between the pages of an old book from long ago. Just so pretty, and a great take on the sketch this week.

WOW Gunn, when you do vintage you do it soooooo well! I absolutely love this card, everything about it is beautiful...done to perfection! Roses are my favorite flower and this image is just gorgeous. I love how the purple really stands out from the neutral background and the way you used the paper detailing at the bottom by the flower is geneous! Totally rocking the sketch and this is another one that deserves to be framed and hung on a wall! Absolutely stunning!
Hope the new computer system is getting easier for you....hang in there, you can do it!
Thanks for always being such an inspiration!
Big hugs,
