Flowers in Vase

This week's challenge from Cindy Haffner for the CCEE Stampers is to use pink, black, and white. I sure do like that combination. My sister gave me this awesome site for digital images. It is Digital Two for Tuesday and has the most beautiful, vintage images. I was on Leslie Miller's blog, Running With Scissors and she said the author of that blog searches for the vintage images in catalogs, books, and magazines where the copyright has expired. She said she scans them, cleans them up,  and then lets us use them as digital images. I love this one and it is from an 1896 Burpee Book. How awesome is that!

Hope you'll check out the rest of the team's beautiful cards and join us with your card.

Recipe:
Stamps: Digital Two for Tuesday
Paper: PTI white cardstock, Stampin'Up! Pretty in Pink

Benzi, this is fabulous! Don't know if you can link this up because of the dating on the post (didn't see it), but City Crafter is having a Splash of Pink challenge right now. THis seems to fit the bill. Good luck with it if you do!
