Vintage Valentine

Hi there.  Don't you just love Valentine's Day?  I do. But for me, it's not just about the cute cards, chocolates and flowers.  It's a remembrance for me of the One who loved me enough to die for me.  The One who endured so much, just so that I could be redeemed.  That One?  Jesus Christ.  His love for all of us is the most wonderful example of Valentine's Day there is.  If there was a way I could send Him a Valentine's Day card, I would.  The best I can do is just to tell Him on a regular basis how much I love Him and am thankful for the His sacrifice on Golgotha's Hill over 2000 years ago.

Today's card uses a vintage photo of two darling angels.  I used my pink colored pencil to add some color to their robes while leaving the rest of the picture in shades of gray.  

I started with a piece of Real Red (SU) card stock for the A2 card base.  I inked the edges of the photo with DI Vintage Photo and matted it on a piece of Cream card stock (Recollections).  I then found a vintage post card image in my stash and inked it all over with the Vintage Photo ink to distress it a bit.  I chose a piece of DCWV brown and red rose patterned paper as the background.  I adhered the DP and then the post card image.  I added  a strip of double sided tape (American Crafts) to the center of the card and added the red gathered ribbon. I then used pop dots to adhere the angels. The sentiment is from Studio G and stamped with Memento Rhubarb Stalk.   I added some brads to the corners for a finished look.  

It's not overly cluttered with embellishments, but I think it has that vintage feel.  

I am entering this card into the ABC Challenges, the Robin's Fetishes and the Shopping Our Stash challenges for this week.

Thanks for coming by and I hope you enjoyed my card for today.  God bless y'all.
