A Mother's Day Card - Tiddly Inks Challenge

 Hi ya everyone!!!
  It's Tuesday and that means a brand new Tiddly challenge at the Tiddly Inks Challenge Blog!  This week we would love to see you create a VINTAGE Mother's Day card.  How fun?  I hope I pulled it off!  I used these adorable pixie image that Christy created called Party Time.  I colored them in Copics and fussy cut them.  I also inked the edges with Old Paper ink from Tim Holtz.
 I grabbed the adorable paper from Echo Park called For The Record and layered a number of elements that come in the stack.  I also added some twine and a large pearl medallion from my stash.  On the Echo Park paper I used a stamp of flowers and sentiment.  The mom on the banner is from a little alphabet set I got a few years ago.  I inked each piece of paper in the Old Paper ink.
 I LOVE how this card turned out and I hope my mom likes it!  I also hope I pulled off the Vintage look!  Join us for the new challenge at the Tiddly Inks challenge blog.  Also, you have to use a Tiddly image to play - all images can be found right HERE in the shop!!!
