BBB-06 - Vintage Beauty!



Happy New Year everyone!
I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and New Year celebration! I sure did, even though I had to work a few days. Kicking off 2011 with another Bring Back Beautiful Challenge:

What’s old is new in stamping. With lace, buttons and a beautiful stitched edge, we know card makers can create beautiful things with a vintage feel! Link up your Bring Back Beauty card HERE to enter. If you upload to SCS, please use the keyword BBB06. You have until January 31st to enter! As we unveil our challenge for next month, we’ll share our True Beauties – those card makers who wowed us with this challenge! Winners will be featured on the Flourishes Blog and will receive a True Beauty blog button to display proudly on their blog!



For my card today I chose to work with the newly released Butterflies & Blossoms set.
I stamped parts of the image in the two corners of the diecut with Archival Ink Coffee, and colored it with Distress Inks.



To get the Vintage feel, I sponged it with Distress Ink Vintage photo.
...And before you go, be sure to stop by these talented ladies:

Thanks so much for stopping by today!

You are so gifted when it comes to card making...sry I haven't been around lately...the holidays took me by surprise, as I ended up making most of my gifts by hand...and it took me a while.
