Remember when

Remember when life was simple? I'm not sure I do. When you look at these images, please click on them, to see them without the greenish background on my blog.
I made this card for the Crafty Girl's Challenge #2, use two die cuts. I rarely use fewer than two die cuts, so this restraint was not very challenging!
Remember When
I used a stamp from Heartfelt Creations Mystic Hideaway for the focal. I colored it with my Copic markers, using light pink and warm grays, and then added some texture with my Prismacolor pencils. I framed the image with two dies from Spellbinders' Fleur de Lis Squares, cutting away the center of the inside square with a die from Classic Squares. I love the way the vines on the trellis around the image peek out around the frame. I stitched a piece of patterned paper, which coordinates amazingly well with this image, from a set I bought years ago called Girls to Women, from Busy Scrapper's Solution to a piece of brown card stock for the base.

I stamped the sentiment with Justrite Stamper's soon to be discontinued Old Friend set, and then cut it out with the smallest die from the Lacy Circles Spellbinders' die. The frame on the stamp fits just outside the embossed region on that die cut, giving the edge an even lacier texture.
Remember When Detail
I love this card so much, I'm going to share it on the Simon Says Stamp! Anything Goes Challenge page as well. Thanks for looking!
