Gingersnap Creations is celebrating its first birthday with lots of challenges around a party theme. This card is for the GC44 Random Redhead: Birthday Greeting challenge. I found this delightful oops girl at Altered Artifacts. I used the free vintage postcard as is, distressing the edges with 3 colors of Tim Holtz for Ranger Distress Inks: Shabby Shutters, Weathered Wood, and Pumice Stone. I made up the computer generated greeting.
Can't you just picture this cute little girl not being able to wait for cake? I have several young great-nieces and nephews who are just tall enough to see over the top of the table. They spot the cake; then out stretches those little arms; and woosh--they're licking the frosting off their fingers.
I used generic yellow card stock and topped it with hot pink run through the Cuttlebug with the Swiss Dots embossing folder. Flowers are Prima with blingy centers resting on my favorite green vine trim. I thought the bright pastels were a good contrast to the vintage photo and sentiment. I love how these vintage images are being enhanced with bright pastel colors. (My Blog Candy jar in the right sidebar is another example.)
I'm giving this card to a friend this week. I like this little oops girl so much that I want to use her again on another card that needs to get mailed in the next few days.
I'd just like to say that I'm very happy to have discovered Gingersnap Creations. Their challenges are in sync with what I like to create. I'm very pleased to have been chosen as one of the Ginger Gems for the 3 Colors I Love Challenge (my Amelia layout).
