On A Vintage Kick

Another vintage card....this style just seems to appeal to me!  This is also for  Verve challenge VLVJan01, which is a sketch as well as to use hardware on your card.  I had the whole thing finished and realized I forgot the hardware!!!  Ack!

I "vintaged" the brad by mixing some crystal effects and Creamy Caramel ink together and  dipping a Silver HPH brad into it.  I am not sure brads & pearls go together, but I kind of like it!  The CB'd panel was also "vintaged" by rubbing a Distress Ink pad over top.  Gotta go!  TFL!

  • Stamps:  Wonderful Wishes, Verve; Mixed Messages, PTI, Linen
  • Paper:  K&Co Hannah DP; Kraft, VV
  • Ink:  Creamy Caramel, Pink Pirouette, Distress Linen
  • Acc:  CB folder,  Taffeta ribbon, Pearls, Silver HPH, Crystal Effects, Nesties, Dimensionals, Sponge Dauber
