A Time to Remember

The challenge at City Crafter is to use a Vintage Girl and/or Vintage Boy in our project. I remembered a silhouette digital image from Graphics Fairy in my file and thought it would be perfect and married it up to a pattern paper that has a vintage feel. I "antiqued" the image with some distressed ink and distressed the edges before attaching to a sage mat. I used a Sage card stock base with a mat of the pattern paper that I embossed but hard to see the embossing. Finished with a satin looped ribbon and a sentiment. It captures a moment in time to cherish in one's memories.
Challenges:
City Crafter: Use a vintage girl and/or vintage boy.
BasicGrey Challenge: Anything goes. Used pattern paper from Cappella Pad.

Like the silhouette look to this. We still have a swing set in our yard that hubby built when daughter was younger and this brings back fond memories. Daughter is now 21. Thanks for entering MFP Simple Salutations Dog Ch.
