Nostalgic Children

Hello Blog Friends, I have a nostalgic card to share with you today - I love everything nostalgic - it just feel so right to me - and a little sentimental!  That cannot be so bad -can it?!

I had fun creating the background using the Flower Play Stamps and Imagine Crafts 'featuring' Tsukineko Memento Ink in Teal Zeal and a Sponge Dauber.  This has been cut/embossed using Baby Buntings Spellbinders® presents “A Gilded Life. Want2Scrap Pearls have been added to the center of the flowers.

The circle frame has been cut from the Blooming Collection Spellbinders® Shapeabilities® Decorative Frames and adhered using liquid glue - don't you love the embossing and debossing on this - perfect on plain cardstock or patterned paper.

Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Kraft Photo Corners, 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner have been used on this card.  A double seam binding bow has been adhered to the side of the image and a silver fairy embellishment added.
