Another Vintage Card

Good Morning Peeps.

I wanted to take a moment to express my gratitude for all the wonderful comments and e-mails I have received in the last few days concerning my blog post on Saturday. The tornado that destroyed much of Joplin and took so many lives shook all of us to the very core. Not just the people here in this area but many  from around the country. I hear many stories every day of the humanity of man, the strangers coming together to help, the monies being donated, the sacrifices made. Yesterday on a local news broadcast they had a very heart warming story of a young boy who set up a lemonade stand to raise money to help. He had made over three hundred dollars so far. He plans to keep his stand going all summer. Even though this storm took so much it has definitely brought out the best in most people. There has been a few stories of the worse too, and one that effected my family personally but I won't dwell on that. For the most part people are basically good. :)

Now onto my card for today. I needed a birthday card and I wanted to try another vintage hydrangea. I love the look of this one in rich razzleberry. I did tone this one down a bit, less shabby than yesterdays one but I still like it. I did less sponging and distressing and feel like this one is more "me"

The razzleberry DSP is from a retired pack and the other DSP on the bottom is from the Newsprint pack.
I added some rich razzleberry satin ribbon, isn't it pretty? It ties like a dream!

Well, that is it from me, thanks so much for stopping by today and
