three flowers and a sketch

we're still rockin' the "we three kings" prompt at ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and thus we're including three of something rather prominently on our cards. in this case i've got three red flowers, with eyelet outlet sticky-back pearl centers. see?

vintage postcard from my collection, scanned, re-sized and printed on canon glossy photo paper; patterned paper: blue fern studio, authentique; gold glitter paper: american crafts POW; red flowers: recollections; small pearls: eyelet outlet; distressing tool: tonic; ink: prima; glossy white cardstock: the paper cut; skinny gold cording from a package i think; adhesives: elmers brand gluetape, 3m foam tape, gluedots

in retrospect, i rather wish the flowers were a tiny bit smaller, or the scanned and re-sized vintage postcard i used as focal image was a tiny bit bigger. ah well. they are not, and i'm ok with it. luckily i had the awesome current layout from sketch saturday, whom i'd like to thank for the shout out to my love, always card from the end of december. i also thank the nice folks at "fred she said" for the beautiful digital stamps i got as a prize. i had intended to use them this week, actually, but alas i failed to make the sketch, the images i chose and the "three" directive from JB all work together. but you'll be seeing them soon!

meanwhile, stephanie has also made a gorgeous card to inspire you so why not hop over to ♥JINGLE BELLES♥ and check that out, darlings?!


  1. Ooh this is lovely, great use of the sketch too. X

  2. Wonderfully vintage card and the flowers look rightly sized, they are lovely. xoxo

  3. I like everything about this card, especially that vintage image with the soft neutral background. It really makes those pretty red flowers POP! Beautiful Christmas card!
