Barbara’s Birthday Blog Hop!

DSCF6284

Woohoo!  Today is my sweet friend Barbara’s birthday and a whole slew of her friends are giving her a birthday bog hop!!!  I hope you will play along and give her some love! 

You may have arrived from Kisa’s blog, or you can start at Tammy’s blog, or just follow along from here!  It’s all good! 

It wouldn’t be right to honor a Color Throwdown girl without using the CTD colors from this week:

swatch 142

Wow, what a striking combination!!  I also used the Mojo Monday sketch 191:

I pulled out some BG paper, a few vintage images and went to work:

These are definitely not colors I would normally choose for a vintage card, but I really liked using something unusual, and I hope she does too!  Here are a few other views:
