My best friend's grandson's birthday is in January and he will be three.  This is the card that I made for him.  The image is retired from Bugaboo and the sentiment is from TLC, Create.  I made this card also for the Catch the Bug Saturday Challenge which is a BINGO.  I actually used all the elements so it can go down any row or column.

I love vintage images, but just don't get a chance to play with them as often as I like.  Here is one from TLC, Create as well as the sentiment.  I distressed the edges of it as well as the paper.  I also ink distressed the sentiment.  I found some lace in my stash that I forgot that I had, but I don't even know where I got it.  It reminds me of my Grandmother.
