Jasmine goes "vintage" (sort of) . . .

Hey ho . . . it's Monday again! And I'm going on vacation in just a few days! Wheet whooo!! So, since I have to seriously contemplate packing, I'll get right to my Sugar Nellie DT project!!
OK, here's the deal . . . I made this "tag" card as part of a rather large commissioned order for a friend of mine who lives in Florida! I sure hope she likes it! I added a bit of Vintage Photo Distress Inks to all the edges . . . it looks really, really dark in these photos . . . especially on the butterfly border thingie . . . but, in real life, it's much more subtle! I'm blaming it on the fact that the sun had already gone down by the time I took these pics! arrggh! This sweet little image is "Jasmine" and is available HERE at Funky Kits. Here's a side view . . .
My card "recipe" . . .

Ruh roh! What the what?! I can't believe it! I forgot to take an "artsy fartsy" pic . . . aaackkk! My mind must already be on vacay! Sorry about that! I'll include TWO next time. hehehe! Well . . . here's one more view . . .
And . . . that's it for me, sweetpeas! Thanks so much for stopping by to take a peek at my latest Sugar Nellie DT card! And thanks, too, for your sweet comments! Until next time . . . mwahhh!!

Oh, here I am:) I always said I need time when I come to your blog and never had some I guess we never have enough of that.
So you're going on vacay...eventually...when everybody starts working?:)) Lucky you! I bet it's the Carribbean you're heading to:) Well deserved m'dear although I can't hinder from being green with envy..hehe.
So, this is one fabulous card. Great idea to put those panels at random like this, makes it sooo cute and sophisticate. Gotta try this!
Oh, and I LOVE the colors and the image is gorgeous too!
