Old Timey Adds

     Wow! You all must have wondered what happened to me.  I just was sooo busy with family.  My wonderful college girl came home for the Holiday and brought a friend with her.  I had tons of cooking a cleaning and decorating to do too.  I love fall and I really go all out on my fall decorations.  Now unfortunately, I have to take them all down I have 10 bags of plastic pumpkins plus everything else.  Fortunately, I love decorating for Christmas just as much.

      At any rate on to today's card.  I made this for the Just Rite Challenge.  It's one of their wonderful background stamps.

     I started out stamping this in black on cream paper.  I then cut it down a little and used purple and  turquoise distress inks on the background.  I stamped several extra adds and colored them with my favorite Prisma pencils and a little bit of Copic markers then popped it up.  I colored a couple extra butterflies and popped them on top of that  after slathering them in Stickles. Finally I added some paper lace and purple sating ribbon and a cute paper rose.  I hate to leave anything without a border and so I bordered this in black and added some white polka dots.  I have a true "thing" for polka dots and I like to add them to whatever I can.

    I think the finished card looks soft and romantic and I plan to use it as a thank you note. Some of my friends took me out for my birthday to a cute little tea room.
