One of my favorite sites, The Vintage Workshop, is sponsoring a contest on their blog...Here! Just click on the link and read all about it. The Vintage Workshop has some great downloadable images and I have used a number of them for cards and gifts. All of them have a vintage look, of course, and there are many to choose from. Some of my favorites are floral, but I also love the Christmas and Easter designs. Here is a design from their White and Black Christmas ll (IE334) collection that I digitally colored and used as a Christmas card.
I added the stars, the music and the text, as well as the color. Check out their site for more information on the contest and their images.
