I loved the ladies on these two images and decided to keep the embellishment simple so it didn't distract from them too much. I used a Martha Stewart photo corner punch to help frame them. And I did on yesterday's cards also...I just forgot to tell you! *okie thinks her friend Helen, aka DCDoll is totally correct in saying that okie suffers from CRS*
The scrip paper is K & Company and is the same I used on the Ribbon Flower card earlier in the week. I inked the edges, then crumpled the paper up and smoothed it out a bit before sewing it onto the card matte. I think the lighter color did make the image pop a little bit better.
The flowers are Prima's and the centers are actually buttons. They were post buttons and I used pliers to remove the post on the back. I think they worked really well to keep the vintage look. I had gotten the buttons at the little sewing store here in town before it shut down. Man I sure miss that place! I use to go in and sit on the floor going through the boxes of buttons! What? What do you mean you never sit in the floor and shop?! I do it all the time! My friend Linda, aka LGuild, laughs at me but she sure makes me dig to let her see! Even my friend Helen, aka DCDoll, has seen me do this when she and I went to a Big Lots in Phoenix a few years ago.
I am not out of these images yet so yep, tomorrow's post will be more Graphic45 cards!!
