Hey congrats on the non-smoking.. Hey you'll feel tons better, I quit 5 years ago and don't miss it not one bit.. Now I can't stand the smell of people smoking or nicotine breath.

You know nic I wasnt sure if I liked this card, but the funny thing is I actually do. Isnt it strange when we are presented with something completely different how our eye sees it. Usually with vinatage cards they are in black and white or vintage browns so when you did the yellow it didn't look right but the more I looked at it the more it grew on me. Thank you for sharing this card and making me see something I hadn't before..

sari said...

WOW!! This is such a stunning card! Love,love the details! Thanks for joining us over at Cupcake Craft Challenge this week! Good Luck! Hugs and sunshine
