Happy Monday everyone.  Hope you had a wonderful weekend. Since it is  Monday so that means back to my 3rd job (after being a wife and parent).  I had lots of crafting time this weekend so I have lots of posting to complete.  I am currently working on this post during lunch.

My inspiration for this card was from the Cupcake inspiration color challenge as seen below.

When I first saw these colors I had no clue which direction to go. I did find some additional inspiration from a Fellow Fiskateer.

I used my Spellbinders dies to cut the doily and stamped The Roaring 20's Placard stamp from the Rubber Cafe.  The ribbon and lace are from Graphic 45 which is perfect for the vintage look..  The sentiment is from Hero arts.  And the corner punch is from Fiskars.  I struggled with the corner punch a little.... I just wanted those flower to go in the same direction and had to figure out the orientation of the paper to make it work.  

Thanks for stopping in.
