This card has been in the making for quite some time. When I saw the oval challenge over at CAS-ual Fridays, I knew I wanted to play along but I wanted to come up with something that used ovals in an imaginative way. I racked my brain and came up with this idea after looking at vintage furniture magazines that my good friend has hundred's of. I love the bright colours and curves of retro furniture which has been replicated when designing this card.
All the elements in this card have been designed from scratch. Inkscape as well as photoshop has been used to come up with everything in this card. There are 20 different sized ovals in the picture, if you look closely I am sure you will be able to find them all. The font used for the sentiment is "Alba" which I think is a great font to use for retro themed cards. I printed an extra vase that has been paper-pieced to the card and I put dimensional magic on the flower petals to make them stand out.
