Vintage

Hi, what dreadful weather we're having at the moment!  Perfect weather for crafting :-)  There are so many vintage challenges around at the moment, I thought I'd do something with that in mind.  I used some Core'dinations paper with a photo stamp - and this is the result.


The brown and cream cardstock is from the Nostalgia pack and I sanded it with an emery board.  The ribbon is American Crafts and the image is stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia. The pale blue colouring on the dress has been done with Promarkers.  The mesh metal ribbon  is from Ribbon Box and the velvet brads I already had. 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges:-

Top Tip Tuesday - Wedding or Anniversary
Make My Monday - Brown & Cream plus Pink or Blue
Craft Your Days Away - Vintage
Southern Girls Challenge - Childhood Memories
