GC141: Granny's Photo Album

I got busy with some challenges today! I wanted something different so I broke out all my collage images.

There's a fun challenge for you this week on Gingersnap Creations! For the Chestnut Theme LinkChallenge for March the inspiration is "Granny's Photo Album".

I have kept on with my Women's History Month theme in the card below! I used some lovely collage images from Retro Cafe Art Gallery! I love using photo corners so that was my next step. I had this yummy paper in my scrap bin and it was a perfect backdrop for these two ladies. The sentiment, "I Am Woman", was the final detail. I just love that empowering song, don't you?

I Am Woman
Stamp: sentiment (Chapel Road Art)
Collage Images: Family Tree collage sheet (Retro Cafe Art Gallery)
Paper: scraps from the ole basket
Cardstock: Very Vanilla (Stampin Up)
Embellishments: photo corners

I am also entering this card into the following challenges:

Craft Room Challenge - Vintage

Creative Inspirations Paint - Family

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Text Me (text in the background - sentiment is stamped)

Delicious Doodles - Inspired by a Song (I Am Woman by Helen Reddy)
