A Violet Vintage Birthday

Hi All!  I hope that everyone had a wonderful weekend :)  I've got another birthday card to share- I've had my hands full with them and other card orders so I'm just now starting to get around to the Christmas cards- I know, a little bit of freaking out starting to happen as it's December now!!!  Oh well, I seem to do well under pressure so I'm just going to pull it together and work my you-know-what off :)  But back to this card...I colored up a big head version of Violet Vintage from Saturated Canary a little bit ago but I couldn't resist also doing the full version.  So I colored her to match some papers from Simple Stories and distressed everything with some Frayed Burlap Distress Ink for a more 'vintage' type look.  But vintage isn't really my go to style so that's about as far as it went, lol.  Still, I think it turned out okay.  Thanks so much for stopping by to take a look.  Make sure to check back tomorrow when I announce the winner of my candy- yay!  Till then I hope you all have a wonderful start to your week :)
