Day 5 of the Mothers and Daughters Creations First Annual Mothers and Daughters Traditions Blog Roll

A vintage feel is what we are going for today. It's pretty easy to add some vintage like elements to your cards or scrapbook pages. Distress ink and stitching along with a bit of lace and a fitting image make this card feel vintage themed. I used some paper from Mark's Paper Co. and Kaiser, added some Prismacolor aquamarine color to the girls dress and boy's shirt. The flower was punched from the same paper just using the backside. Why don't you give it a try? Now let's see what else is in store for the blog roll.
Mother’s Day is a time for us to reflect back on the special women in our lives - mother, grandmother, daughter, mother-in-law, aunt, cousin, mentor friend. Today’s special Mothers and Daughters Traditions Blog Roll challenge is being hosted by Melita on her blog. Join Melita in making a special scrap page to honor and remember a special woman in your life. Visit her blog for some wonderful ideas and a chance to win some blog candy that says traditions. Laurie and Mia have also posted pages on their blogs, so visit them for even more inspiration and more chances to win today’s blog candy!
Then, visit Tamara’s blog for our second challenge of the day. Old family pictures often have a vintage feel and what better way to highlight them than with vintage styled borders, embellishments, mats, and frames. Tamara takes you through the process of making some wonderful designs for your own scrap book and is offering some gorgeous “vintage” style blog candy as well. Need more ideas for vintage themed designs? Check out the samples for this challenge made by Cathy, and Robin. For more info be sure to check the MDC blog.

Yes, very vintage - it looks great! Just makes me smile thinking of all those "Jack & Jill" stories when I was a kid.
