Vintage Birthday

This is my first entry for CDAC's Progressive 16 challenge. The beautiful image is from Nana Vic's. I've digitally colored the image. The 2 tickets are also images from Nana Vic's. My DP is a lacey design. The trim is a flower design. In the cage I added a Bluebird ready to fly away. The edges were distressed and the cardstock edges were ink distressed. On the birdcage, I placed 8 gold pearls for effect, from Pizzazzaplenty.


  1. This is stunning Sandi, love the colors you've used! =)
    Thanks for joining our bloghop at DS4J! =)

  2. Oh my gosh, if we only lived closer Sandi what fun we could get up to, with you showing me the gorgeous effects that you can create on the computer. I noticed first the crumpled background paper that you used behind the digital and it's set the tone for your stunning card. Your colouring is outstanding and I adore the roses coloured in the friendship colour of yellow. The cage and scroll work looks embossed. The little blue bird can't be missed as the ticket shading enhances him beautifully. Your a clever little chookie that by using the gold pearls on the cage and distressing and staining all the edges you were able to add just the right amount of deepth to your card. Thank you for playing along with the challenge and as always your art work is inpiring. *Hugs*

  3. Wow, Sandi I love this card! I'm with Vickie, wished we lived closer so that you could show me too, how to colour digitally, although I've just about mastered a pencil, lol. Beautiful card, love the little bird blue but want to open the door for him. :)

  4. Beautiful Card Snadi, I would love to be able to color on the computor as well as you do.

  5. WOW Sandi! This came out really nice! I love the way you colored the image and the background paper is so pretty.
