The Glance




This is an attemp to intermingle a vintage image with more eclectic, whimsical stamps and a little more "modern" flair (by using the scalloped punch and polka dot paper). The image of the woman is called "The Glance" by Stampington & Co. I used Autumn Leaves stamps (from Rhonna Farrer's "Swirls" and "Flowers") for the side border. Adding primas ties it altogether and gives the card texture. I may use this card as a Mother's Day card. I'm not sure yet. I know my sister-in-law and my mom would like it.

I like the way you put the image in a circle. And I love your flourishes and the way you tied everything together.

I really like it and I'm not normally a vintage type girl, but this is just timeless to me.

Oh my gosh! I just made a card similar to this with the oval circle and flowers. We must have been on the same wavelength Ethel. LOL. Of course, your card is awesome. Love that image.
