With beautiful papers like this, I love to let them do most of the work and only added a few embellishments.

Cardstock: Stampin Up Pool Party and Whisper White;
Designer Paper: My Mind's Eye 'Lost and Found - Sunshine';
Ink: Stampin Up More Mustard;

This is a card I would have loved to give to my grandmother. The soft colors, the old sewing machine so carefully spotlighted, the gorgous trims that she would have ohhhed and aweddd over. Plain, boring? I think not!
Beautiful ? YES!!!!!
