Vintage Birthday Greetings



Greetings!    Aren’t these two young ladies just lovely?     I feel as though I should be talking quite proper when describing this vintage-feel image and card!     It’s one of the digi images from the brand new I Brake For Digis, called Two Friends.   

I’ve colored them in sepia toned Copic markers, listed below.   You know I love the monochrome technique – hope you’re not getting tired of seeing these!  



I thought the new Capella papers from Basic Grey would be a perfect match for a vintage feel with this image.   I also used the Spellbinders Nestabilities Label Six and Fancy Tags dies on this card . . . added some Kaiser self-adhesive pearls and a small drop of Stickles in Antique Linen  to the rose in the hand of the girl on the left.  

Don’t forget you can still use the code SAVE10MARY for a 10% discount off your entire order at I Brake For Digis!   AND, Della, the super nice owner of both I Brake For Digis and I Brake For Stamps is offering some blog candy ~ a $25.00 Gift Certificate until June 15th.   All the details can be found on the I Brake For Stamps blog.  


***I’m going to be taking a few days off this week.  I haven’t said anything prior to this, but we are in the process of preparing our house to list, workers and repair guys coming and going, meeting with realtors, and driving to and from the Madison area to look for a new home.  The realtor is coming tomorrow to take pictures for the listing and I have a TON of things to finish up!   Eeeeeeeeek!        I’m hoping it will be okay with the new owners if I come back to take pictures of my cardz on the mantel of their fireplace!   LOL***

Thanks for stopping in today.  Enjoy your day.


Copics Used:   E50, 51, 53, 55, 57, 59
