Vintage Halloween: Take Two

Hello!  Today I have another vintage Halloween creation to share.  I got this cute image from FREE ViNTaGE DiGiTaL STaMPS.  I thought this would be perfect to send to my two little nieces.  I used a lot of non-Halloween type items on this card.  The purple paper is from Heartfelt Creations Delicate Aster collection.  I also used new Vintage Floret dies and stamps from Heartfelt Creations for the purple flower.  I outlined the old photo image and the flower with PK Glitz micro glitter.  The leaves are a SU framelit by Sizzix.  The little pumpkin was laying on my work table, but I believe it is from MFT's Primitive Pumpkins set.  The orange strip of DP was in my scrap bin, and the "spooky" is a die cut from K&Company.  I used Antique Linen and Walnut Stain distress inks on the edges of my white card stock base. I also distressed the edges of the purple panel.

When making a vintage-style card, I love that I use a lot of little odds and ends that would otherwise end up hanging around forever in my studio.  That is the fun part of a vintage style project. Throwing bits and pieces of things together unexpectedly to create a little work of art!

This fits the spooky themed challenge over at Totally Paper Crafts.
For the Frosted Designs Challenge-use paints, inks or mists on your project.

Thanks for stopping by! Tomorrow I will have a more CAS style vintage project to share.
