Working with old photographs, this project lends itself to sepia and earth tones

This card was
designed to celebrate
an 80th birthday.
I started with a matted
baby picture, an old snapshot
and a couple of recent photos.
I decided to make the card on
a "natural" buff colored index
stock. Then to compliment
the paper I sepia toned
the older pictures and chose
a font color to match.

The baby picture
was already matted
with an earth tone mat
but the picture was in
black and white. To
balance the colors, I
sepia toned the baby
picture to coordinate
with both the
matting and the paper.
