Practicing Creativity

Vintage Easter postcard makeover

I took an old postcard in my collection, scanned it, corrected it and printed it out as the topper for this Easter card. It was originally a French postcard, but as it's going to an English speaking relative I changed it to an English sentiment.

I didn't have any yellow pearls so I painted white ones with acrylic paint.

I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:

Artistic Inspirations—an Easter Animal
Card Mania—Easter
Crafty Boots—Easter

Paper—cardstock, MME Designer pack, American Crafts Lucy Lemon Twist
Topper—vintage postcard from my collection
Embellishments—pearls, ribbon
Font—Alex Brush
