Time to Remember - MMSC71

Another week and another great sketch at Midnight Madness!  This is my card for this week's challenge and it's for a dear friend's birthday today.  She's actually the woman who first introduced me to the world of making cards and paper crafting and is so talented in her own right.  So this is for you Shelly with many happy returns as they say!

This is the sketch to follow for this week at Midnight Madness.  When I saw it I knew I'd use this wonderful organza flower from Prima that I've had for a while. This is the perfect sketch to use those oversize flowers that you just can't resist but sometimes don't know how it would fit on a card along with a stamped image.  Well Priscilla's team figured that one out with this sketch!

I also couldn't resist this wonderful paper from K&Company called "Jubilee Teal Woman".  It's a collage-type paper and I cut it specifically so the woman would appear in the upper right corner of the card.  I combined it with the brown and pink damask paper from The Paper Studio.

Then to complete the vintage look, I used the "Time to Remember" ticket digi stamp from Sugar Creek Hollow.  It was a perfect fit for the theme of this card I thought. 

Tracy has several of these ticket stamps, including a freebie, at the Sugar Creek Hollow Shoppe.  The Shoppe is filled with other vintage digis that I promise you just won't be able to resist!

So that completes this vintage card for my friend.  I hope she has a time to remember on her birthday.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
