Vintage Valentine

My friend, Ronda (yes, I spelled her name correct) teaches a 'Heritage' class at Scraps Galore, in Albuquerque, New Mexico. She loves the 'shabby chic' papers and the 'old' look of materials and photos. So, she is not only talented, but has a great eye for these things, you know the type-simply amazing. Anyways, I started taking her class because I wanted to scrapbook my family's history, so to speak. She is a wonderful teacher; very knowledgeable, talented, great eye for design and color. Well, I finished that scrapbook album years ago, probably 3 years now. Through that time, I have made some friendships with some great women who take Ronda's 'Heritage' scrapbook class, too. Anyways, I finished my album and keep taking the class. Ronda has so much to teach, and lets face it, it is a chance for us ladies to get out of the house and spend some quality time with the girls.
So, back to my card. I used the papers not for a scrapbook layout, but for a card. I fell in love with the papers Ronda had chosen for the class. They are simply amazing! The company is fancy pants. The line is Vintage Valentine. The ribbon is from Martha Stewart. I purchased the ribbon by the yard at the scrapbook store, so I'm not sure of the color name. I loved how my card turned out. I love how the polka dots, stripes and flowers all go together! See, I told you Ronda has an eye for these things!
Thank you for taking a moment out of your busy schedule to take a peak at what I have been doing. As always, its nice to hear for you, so please leave a comment.
