Vintage Corner Challenge

I finally took a few minutes out of a busy couple days to sit down & just stamp something for me, for fun!  I always like to check out Our Creative Corner's challenges, and this week my stampin' buddy Denise had a sketch challenge:

November Sketch - Final I turned it on its side as I wanted to use a Thomas Kincaid image that hadn't seen any ink for a long time!  And I had to reposition the sentiment....I don't know what's wrong with me lately, I just can't do any sketch as it is....I have to fiddle around with it!   Hope Denise doesn't mind!

I loved Jennifer Meyer's submission with the vintage-looking background, so I CASE'd that a little bit; I used Kraft instead of Close to Cocoa.  There is quite a mix of stamps on this card!  TFL!

  • Stamps:  Winter Post, SU; Aged Sheet Music & Stonehearth Hutch Vignette, CHF; Vintage Christmas, Crafty Secrets
  • Paper:  Kraft, Riding Hood Red, Handsome Hunter, Shimmery White
  • Ink:  Riding Hood Red, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip
  • Acc:  Ribbon from Mike's, Sponge Daubers, Vintage Brad, Circle Punch
