Smile ~ CR84FN Color Challenge

Hi!  I've made a card for one of our nieces today.  It's a "just because" card :)
This card is going into the CR84FN color Challenge 49.  I couldn't resist those wonderful colors.  See what I mean...
Aren't they soft and spring-y?

Here's my card.

I had SO much fun making this card.  The photo is of a family member...taken in the late 1950's.  Isn't it sweet???  I chose a doily print dsp to tie in with the age of the photo.  And, I used some decorative edge scissors to trim the photo (this isn't the original photo, but a copy).  This edge looks similar to the ones on vintage photos of that time.  Yes.  I'm showing my age :)   Oh, and I used a linen texture impression plate for the kraft panel.  I love that texture!
Thanks so much for taking a look today,

What's in it?
card stock: daffodil delight, crumb cake (kraft), basic gray (Stampin' Up!)
stamp: wonderful words II (SU)
dsp: flirtatious (SU)

other: linen impression plate, heart border die, kraft satin ribbon, kraft wool felt (Papertrey Ink), photo paper (Kodak), decorative scissors (Fiskars)
