You're Too Kind

Hello again my friend!  How is your Saturday going?  Great I hope!  I had a little crafty time today and made a vintage inspired card using Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge number 42! 


For my card I reached for Echo Park's For the Record, cause I {heart} it! 


Started with some text patterned paper and distressed it with Walnut Stain and my fingernail.  Die cut a scallop circle and distressed it, added a ledger die cut and some delightful buttons! 


Cut a strip of red polka dot patterned paper, stamped my sentiment and adhered it to my card front, along with a sticker border strip.


Lastly, I added a bow of twine and a big red flower! 

I hope you enjoyed and as always, thank you for stopping by and leaving such sweet comments!

Lindsay
