Do What Makes You Happy. Vintage paper crafts have definitely been making me very happy, so it was perfect to add to my card! I also used several stamps from the Iron Orchid set My Dear (I think this kit is retired). I stamped the script in antique Linen distress ink onto the ledger DP. I also stamped the single postage stamp. You can see it peeking out from behind the bow, and also I cut a circle out of a one of the stamps, and added it to the vintage lady image. The scrolly stamp in the right corner is also from this set.
The vintage lady image is from a free vintage clip art site here. I loved the smoky blues, but didn't realize that it was an advertisement for cigarettes! So....I covered up the word "cigarette" with the circle and gem.
I die cut the flower with Spellbinders dies (Tattered Florals) for Heartfelt Creations with text from an old book. I inked all of the edges with distress ink, and added some chunky glitter to all of the petals. I just free hand cut the leaves.
The designer paper is from Authentique. The white twine is from my sweet friend and ippity chick, Noelle.
This is for Crafty Ribbons Challenge 28-vintage theme!
So that's about it! I hope you all have a wonderful weekend. I may be in a minority group of ladies, but I am so super excited that football season is here! HOORAY! When I am not watching the games, I will be hanging with my guys outside. It is supposed to be GORGEOUS this weekend.
Have a good one!
