I have used Priscillastyles latest digi for this card. It is called Oil lamp and can be found here. Isn't it great?

Had to turn to Tim Holtz grungeboard for this. I embossed them with Vintage Photo embossing and added a hinge at the top and the bottom of the image. I also embossed a grungeboard flourishes and then I added pearls on the outside of it.

And then of course - some flowers - never a card without them *LOL*

Gunn, I do believe that you and Linda are the best vintage card artists that I know! Wow this card is wonderful. I love how the blue color pops on the card! Beautiful embellishments too!

Gunn-Just popped into your blog this morning and saw your title. Shine a Light. Well now I got this song in my head by Elton John:
Shine a light shine a light
Shine a light won't you shine a light
Philadelphia freedom I love you, yes I do
Now you will be singing it all day too!!! lol

WOW you have done a fabulous job with this digi of Priscilla's. I love the grunge board and the hinges and the pearls ink everything. You are really in your element when you are doing vintage. Just fabulous and awesome. Your work is amazing.

Bear Hugs,
Carol :O}

Why are you all sabotaging me. I wanted to use this image down the road, but how can I now that I've seen what you've done with it. Mine would pale in comparison Gunn. Your cards are so, so fabulous, I just don't know what to say. Your papers, distressing, showcasing of Priscilla's oil lamp image, flowers are just filled to the brim with the vintage flair you are known for!! WOW, WOW, WOW!!

Are you also trying to be the fave too with this one? Everyone's after my status place!!! LOL!!

First of all this is one of my favorite color combos to use together. Reminds me of the brown bathtub we used to have and my Mom decorated with those soft bloe accents...no one could beleive it when they came into our house how pretty it was. And by the way...I would love to know if you ordered your flowers online...beautiful accent to add to an outstanding card. Blessings, Tracy
