1959 A very good year

Today is my boyfriend's birthday.  So I made this card for him using the Lili of the Valley image and a sentiment from TLC.  I tease him that he is vintage so I made a card that looks like it, hehe.  He actually likes purple so that is why I actually colored it the way I did, and that was one of the first things he commented about when he saw it.

Oh Lisa, what a pretty card, I too love the colour purple. He looked very serious looking at his card and taking it all in. I love this Lily Of The Valley stamp it's so cute. Love your design papers they work brilliantly together and the button embellishment is perfect for a males card. I do hope he had an awesome birthday. Great card and thanks so much for sharing it with us over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday 2 and good luck.
Hugs

What a fun card Lisa! At first I thought that you had combined two images to make your gorgeous card but when I read the "deets" realized that it was one (thanks for including the name! It is now part of MY collection too). It looks like your boyfriend liked his card. Thanks for joining in the fun over on the SSW2 blog this fortnight.

Oh what a gorgeous card for your honey! Such a cute idea taking a pic of him admiring it - I will try to snap one of Brian tomorrow (his birthday!), but I don't think he'll let me put it on my blog - he's too shy - but we'll see! Love the personalized sentiment on this!
