Papertake Weekly - Lilac and Lemon with Peggy Loves Vintage

Hi everyone! Monday is done and it's time for a new Papetake Weekly challenge. This week, Dawny is looking for Lilac and Lemon. Isn't it a glorious combination of colors? I love it! I wanted to use this adorable image from Peggy Loves Vintage. Isn't it the cutest little goose you've ever seen? Peggy thinks (and I agree) that she looks like a snow goose. Anyway, if you visit Peggy's blog, you can get her for free!! Yep, for free! Just click on the pic so you blow it up to full size, and then right click on the pic and save it to your computer.

This is just one of the hundreds and hundreds of adorable images that Peggy has on her vintage cd's. And they're soooooo easy to use! I just printed this little cutie out four times on one sheet. I cut one of them out, then started cutting out pieces and layering for dimension and cuteness. :)

I took the fourth goose, and framed her cute little face and hat with a circle nestie to adorn the inside of the card. The lemon polka dot paper is digi from Pink Petticoat, and the lilac cardstock is Bazzill. I decorated the corners with a small punched flower centered with a Dew Drop, and stitched all the panels. I also added some yummy yellow silk ribbon and a cute butterfly charm that are available at Stamp and Create.



Please be sure and pop over to Papertake Weekly to check out our sponsor for this week, and then grab your paper and glue to play along for a chance at a fabulous prize! And don't forget to visit Peggy Loves Vintage and her blog, and leave her some love for the free images! Thanks for stopping by to see me today, and hope to see you back again soon! Hugs!
If you're interested, this card is for sale on ebay. Just click here.

Yellow and purple just scream Easter to me. Very pretty card. What kind of printer do you have. It must be awsome because your digi images always look fabulous. I have a canon and my ink is so exspensive. I need a new printer.
How do you find the time to make all of the cards you do? I am home all of the time and you run circles around me!LOL! All of your cards turn out gorgeous to boot.
Have a great week Sharon.

Hugs,
Pam
