The card base is Soft Suede. I also used the First Edition designer series paper. This was my first attempt at making a vintage-type card.
The sentiment is from the hostess level one set called Afterthoughts. I inked up the stamp with Always Artichoke ink, then wiped off the portion of the stamp that says, "...so you don't have to share" with a baby wipe. Otherwise the sentiment didn't fit in the wide oval punch. Then I layered it onto a piece of Soft Suede cut with the Decorative Label punch. That got distressed with some Soft Suede ink, too.
Oh, and the leaves were made using an oval punch. I first folded the Old Olive card stock in half then punched just a portion of it. Then I added some drops of Crystal Effects to the petals to look like dew. Kinda went overboard with that. If I do that again, I'll be a little more strategic in where I place them.

Bradley is home today with pinkeye! Dide had it last week, but got over it. I kinda thought that this little bug had escaped the rest of the family. I was kinda paranoid that Clarice would get it before her surgery. ... While writing this post, one of my eyes started to feel a little funky. Hope it's just a psychosomatic symptom!
I took photos of several other projects today. Can't wait to share them with you! I'd stay at the computer all night and write, but then who would cook supper, LOL!
