Magical Monday Vintage Card & Freebie

EDITED:  Oops posted too early and don't know how to change - Sorry!

Woo Hoo!!!! It's officially the first day of Spring here and all about flowers and warmer weather.  Nina has created this gorgeous new Doodle Flower 4 image for you  to use on your card and I have been given the honor of bringing you the challenge for this week at TMIA/PCC.  The challenge is to create a card or vintage tag to be eligible for this weeks prize. You are free to use any image of your choice but we love it when you use a Paper Cupcake image (here) plus you get 2 entries in the drawing. 

If you have not been to the challenge blog to welcome our new designers and see their awesome designs you are really missing out on some fantastic eye candy. With that said, I hope you will stop by to say hi and see the gorgeous entries for this week. 

Everything on this card is from my stash except for the new image, Doodle Flower 4 colored with Copics, gems and Stickles added.  The DP is a gift from my friend Diane, in fact, she gave me a whole book of DP that has been discontinued and I just fell in love with those papers, of course, they are purple......LOL  Sketch is from last weeks Friday Sketchers #145.  Used Spellbinder dies, Stickles, MS branch punch,  flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and a Myan chipboard fluorish colored with Copics.

I am also entering this card in Creatalicious Challenges
Two Tone Colors

Thanks so much for stopping by and I hope you have the time to leave me a comment so I will be sure to stop by and visit to see what's new with you.  I'd also like to know what you think of the new blog look, which is a freebie, from Sharon at Plumrose Lane.  It still needs a lot of tweaking! She has some fab new blog backgrounds.
"Hugs" Carol (Granny)

Totally liking your new blogsite look, very you, with the vintage feel and gorgeous flowers. Great job of adding the tabs up the top as well.
So nice to see your mojo is back as your card using Nina's doodleflower4 is stunning. Everything about it is perfect. I do hope to play along if I can get just a few hours to myself. *Hugs*
