Secret Reveal - Victoria Case in The Town

I'm jumping up and down cause today I can finally spill the beans about The Townscrapper's exciting NEWS! Woohoo!!

Phebe at the Townscrapper
is excited to announce
the exceptionally talented artist

is designing an
exclusive line of stamps
just for The Townscrapper.

Today's card features 1 of the 6 new images created by Victoria. Isn't this girl just the sweetest! The image shouts SUNSHINE! I've been thinking that anytime is a good time to show those close to us how much we love and appreciate them. No need to wait for that special occasion or designated day so this card is for my mom. I hope it brightens up her day in some small way.

Victoria Case Spring Card

I have my friend and very talented fellow DT member Zoe over at Make-it-Crafty to thank for my vintage-style 'attempt' with this card. She challenged me this week to make a vintage card and I was nervous cause I've never done one before. Now do you ever look back and think: shoulda, coulda, woulda....I can't help myself as I would have liked to add a few more features, like distressing and inking the edges of my paper, but I had already firmly glued everything down - duuuuh! Oh well there's always next time - hehehehehe.

I'm also entering this card into 3 challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Challenge Blog - Mother's Day/Girly
CAARDvarks - Birds & Butterflies
Totally Gorjuss - For Mum

Here's a close-up.
