Beautiful Violette

Hello everyone!  A vintage, shabby chic vibe was in me on the day I created this card.  It also gave me a chance to ink up a new-to-me (and now discontinued) Pink Paislee set, London Market.


A sweet, lacy design from Vintage Blue (Glitz Designs) was stamped along the bottom of the striped patterned paper (My Mind's Eye).  The apothecary jar and label are from Graphic 45's Olde Curiosity set.


I stamped various images from London Market:  a crown and a flourished label.  On a white scrap, a banner and the word 'beautiful' from the same set were stamped, trimmed, then added to the card base.


Life is still running full-steam ahead here in various ways, and I'm trying desperately to keep up with it.  My mom told me that Dr. Oz did a segment on an herbal remedy called Passionflower that helps with anxiety.  I bought the tincture form at my grocery store recently, and am going to give it a try.  ;)  I'll let you know if it is worthwhile.

Thanks for dropping in today!
