Count Your Blessings

Hello! It has been a while since I entered Sugar Creek Hollow challenge or Really Reasonable Ribbon challenge.  This week Sugar Creek Hollow has asked us to do a vintage card with a theme of A Child's Life.  I decided to use a digi image from A Day for Daisies, their sponsor for this challenge.  I printed "Night Time Prayers" on white card stock and colored the image using a lot of Copics for a pink and brown theme. I think this image has a great vintage look and I tried to add it more vintage feel by making the bedspread appear to be Chenille which I think is a very vintage fabric. I hope I succeeded. I chose the Pattern Paper for the wallpaper because of its vintage feel and made the sentiment appear to be a wall hanging above the bed. Another touch was embossing the Brown cardstock used for the carpet to give texture to the floor. I used gold parchment paper for the mat behind the image which I tore the edges and distressed with ink. Finished with pink organza ribbon topped with narrow brown organza ribbon and bow.
