PLAYING WITH "OLD" STUFF

How is your summer going? Since it has finally arrived with vengance and heat, it has been flying by. We are expecting Family to arrive in the next few days. My sister is driving up from Mexico with 3 of her kids. I pray they will have a safe trip through the scorching heat in the States! So, we have been busy getting ready to see them.
I came upon this card the other day and it just called out to me. As you may know, one of my favorite techniques is the cracked glass. And I just had to use the retired Provencal set. I used my ww pencils and blending pen to color the image. The paper I took from the color I had used in the image. So, since I am using retired stuff I thought I'd make it a "retired" card for most of the parts. Cardstock: Confetti white, Mellow Moss, Perfect Plum, Marigold Morning (retired), Chocolate Chip. For the "ticket punch" I used a round hole punch, since I do not have the ticket punch. For the words I used Around the Block, also retired. I stamped the background with French Script, also retired. Accesories: Gold brads, eyeledts and Gold Cord, retired.
Have a great day!
