My camera does not capture the shading of the image well. You can make out the red around the edges but you cannot see the Vintage Photo shading inside the image and around the edges to the red. Its subtle so that the cardstock was not blinding white against the off white/ivory of the paper and trim.
This is for a challenge - Squigglelfy Challenge # SFC1112 - Use homemade flowers on your card. My beautiful homemade flowers were hand crocheted (is that a word?) by my great friend, Linda Weber. I have a whole drawer in my organizer with these little beauties in different colors. I use them sparingly because I love them! I thought they just added a little something to these cards.
Speaking of cards, when I do these challenges, most of the time I make more than one of the same card. I ship cards to CARDS 4 OUR TROOPS at least once a month. Between myself and the great ladies at ScrapbookPlace (yahoo group) we sent approximately 1800 cards, numerous puzzle books and personal hygeine products. This is something near and dear to my heart. I do not have anyone in my family at the moment in the service, but a long line of my relatives have given service to our country and this is how I honor them and to thank the current soldiers for their service. My maternal grandfather served in Korea; my father, two uncles and a cousin in Vietnam and my brother in the first Iraq war.
