Vintage Bathing Beauty


I am squeaking in another card today, one with very little stamping, but a fun image using some Graphic45 paper I had.  First, it uses the TechnoStamper sketch 223 for this week:

and is also for the Sugar Creek Hollow’s challenge 13, which is fashion, and (this is stretching it a bit) lastly, for City Crafter’s challenge 111, which is travel, and you need a ticket!! So here we go:


This card is larger than usual, about 6 1/2 by 4 1/4, to accomodate my bathing beauty!  I cut some mini posters from the paper, which is where I got the “transportion” – see the Union Castle Line????  I also cut two banners from vellum cardstock on which to stamp my sentiment, then layered them to get the double ends, plus it helps give a little more opacity to the vellum but still allowing the background to show through a bit.


And my ticket is from my great-aunt’s estate….she never threw anything away, and she did a lot of traveling, so I saved some of the goodies I found while helping my dad clean out her house:


Thanks for visiting today!
