CPC Retro & Vintage Blog Hop

Good Morning everyone!  I am excited about our Christian Paper Craft's Blog Hop today.  I really don't think I do a lot of Retro, but Vintage I can get into a little.  But today we would like for you to join us at our Retro & Vintage Blog Hop!  For more details, you can see our blog hop details here!

For my card today, I found this cute digital image on line at a web site call "Free Pretty Things for You."  Isn't it just the cutest image? 

What I did to make this card was to take some Whisper White card stock and then I punched out 1 1/4" squares of Pretty in Pink card stock.  I then lined them up on the white to make like a checker board and adhered that to a piece of tempting turquoise card stock, wrapped the 1/4" grosgrain ribbon around and tied a bow and adhered the image to black and then to the turquoise.  All of this adhered to the base of the card.  The image was already colored so no coloring.  That can be a good thing!  Then I wanted a sentiment so I pulled out a new set I just got from the summer mini, and a hostess level gift at that, called Swirls & Curls Verses.  Such a fun stamp set.

Here is another view!

Hope you will join in on our blog hop today and tomorrow.  Again, for directions and what you can win, please see this post!
