Make My Monday

The challenge this week at Make My Monday is to make a vintage style card using CREAM AND SEPIA with either BLUE OR PINK.  I decided to go for this image of Wellington as I reckon he is definitely a vintage bear and in the right colours too. The floral embossed panel was some Tim Holtz whitewash card which was put through a Sheena floral folder and sanded to bring out the blue.  A punched strip using a Tonic border punch was added along with some cream lace and the sentiment printed and popped onto a couple of toning tags.  Of course I couldn't resist using a few of the 'waste' flowers from the punched strip - never throw anything away!!


  1. The floral embossed panel looks super with the flowers in the image. Reckon he's definitely vintage & love the use of blue with the browns.
