Relax, Take it Easy

News Flash: My card was chosen as Top 3 at Moving Along With The Times - Va va voom challenge

Hello my crafty friends! Let me share this card that I made. I'm feeling the retro theme today and I need lots of birthday cards. My card is 5inches by 6 inches and I'm using one of my fave pin-up girls digi images from Far Far Hill.

To make the edges of the blue card look vintagey, I inked it up with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in 
Old Paper. Same thing with the other panels and the sentiments. 
I also distressed the edges of the image and the panels. 

I arranged strips of soft, frilly ribbon behind the pillow to make the girl appear very comfy.
She looks lovely there :-)
