Frilly and Funkie


The Funkie Junkie, Linda Coughlin, has started a new challenge called Frilly & Funkie.  The first challenge was yesterday, and I couldn’t wait to play!  Although I love vintage style creations, they do take me forever to do!  Thankfully, their challenges are every other week once they get started!  I printed out a vintage Easter postcard, mounted it on Pool Party card, and added some vintage embellishments:


Most everything was a little scrap from here & there!  There is a little bit of stamping, and I dyed the seam binding with some Pool Party ink.  Here are a couple closeups:



If you have any questions about anything on the card, just shoot me an email (be sure to include yours as well so I can answer!). And how about some gymnastics?



Thanks for visiting today!

Oh LeAnne, this is just too sweet. I love that image. Will have to go scouting around for it for my vintage collection. Your colors are just gorgeous and the mix of patterns on the paper is delightful The glittery panel is a perfect accent.

Thanks so much for joining us. I am so thrilled that you took part in the fun of our first challenge and hope you will be a regular at Frilly and Fancy!
