This was a card in the summer mini catalog. I love the "vintage" style, so I had to copy it.
First, I clear embossed the "swirls" on the corners of the Vanilla Top Note. Then I spritzed Log Cabin smooch spritz on it. Sometimes I get a little close to the project when I spritz, and this was one of those times. The spritz ran a little, so I sponged it to even it up. I love the way it looked after that!
After it dried, I spritzed a little Vanilla Shimmer over the Log Cabin.
While the whole thing was drying, I stamped the birds, the sentiment and the flower, and added a few flowers along the bottom of the card in Old Olive. Then, of course, I spritzed a little more Vanilla Shimmer on the Old Olive card.

The workshop today went great. I think everyone loved the cards. There are cards you make to give away, and cards you make just to look at. This is a card to look at; the workshop cards were cards to give away. Oh, I'm sure I'll give this one to somebody, but I don't have a specific home for it yet. Sandy brought an adorable card case with 10 cards and a matching pen to show us today. It was so cute; I'm going to have to try to "CASE" (copy and share everything) it!
Off to bed!
