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 . . .
