Original Idea?


I used to work with an older gentleman who often made the comment - "I haven't made a mistake since 1957" (and then he would just die laughing)!!!!! Well I feel like I can relate to this as sometimes I feel I haven't had an original idea since about that long and wouldn't know what one was if it knocked me in the face!!! Anyway, on to this card...............

I'm pretty sure this idea came from someone but I really don't know who had it or where I saw one similar to it. Wherever I saw the idea I don't think they had used the Vintage Vogue set from SU though. So, does that make mine an original????? I'd like to think so as I really like how the card turned out. The sentiment is Well Scripted from SU - such a nice set to have. I used Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, White, and some unknown DP that matched it pretty good. The flower was stamped, then cut out, and popped up on dimensionals.

Nothing fancy with this card, but it will make a nice "Birthday" for someone.

Thanks for stopping by....................
