I just got "gridlines two" from PTI in the mail, so I just had to use it! Oh my gosh, this set is super fun!! I thought it might be tedious, but it's not! It's actually quite relaxing! I used the "stamp off" method Kristina mentioned to get the light and dark variations of pacific point and kiwi kiss. I think my hand made decorative paper turned out really well! I like that it is not perfect, kind of like a vintage fabric!
I was lucky to have ribbon and flowers in my stash that matched the challenge!
The use of the silhouette label cut out happened because of a disastrous white embossing powder incident. It was not pretty, folks! I didn't want to scrap the card, so I just covered it up! I decided to distress it some with the pacific point color to add to the vintage-y feel.
Here is my final image. I really like this card! I am sending it off to my Mom for some cheering up. I know she will love all the bright colors!

Thank you so much for visiting!

Have an amazing day,
