RETRO and Belated birthday card!

Hi followers, just a quick post to show you a card that literally took FIVE minutes to make!

I used a pattern paper from Papertrey Ink (PTI), it's called "Vintage Linen" and it's adorable with so many familiar "old-time" images from greeting cards (if you're old enough to remember them).

The paper is just large enough to cover the front (or maybe the inside) of your card, stamp it and done.

Of course if you wanted there are dies to also coordinate with the floral images, but I was in a hurry to get the card in the mail before pick up.
Even the coordinating stamp sentiment has the vintage look.

Since I needed a belated card I did use a more current "belated" stamp on the front.  I think the inside sentiment is so nice, it is also from PTI and I just had to add one of the lined floral images inside to pick up on the front of the card.

Thanks for checking out my blog, would love to read your comments.

Oh this paper is so pretty! Love the colors--especially the pop of the red line. Great inspiration to re-create the look with stamps too. Pretty card, Mom!
