Victorian Card

This is a 6x5.5 card made from the Maja Design Paper Vintage Autumn Basics.  Some of the papers were torn, curled, pleated to give a different look.
This paper is from Sweden and I just fell in love with it.  First, I dropped some Distressed ink on the paper, spritz with water and dried.   A small section of it was stenciled using Wendy Vecchi's Diamond Stencil and Tim Holtz Paste.  The flowers were made using Spellbinders Blossom 2, and crepe paper, then painted with Distressed reinkers. 
Products used on this card:
Lorelai Outline #840,
Exotic Butterflies #2, Dl113
Marianne LR0228
Summer Foliage M12 - Magnolia
Swirl - 040250 - Magnolia
These dies and stencil can all be purchased from Terri at Joan's Gardens.

Teaching Lily how to make noodles!

Lily, our Great-Granddaughter (12) is spending the week with us.  Today I taught her
how to make homemade noodles and we are now working on a pop up box card.  We will post that later.  I love this precious time.
