Paper Players 108

DSCF5994
Happy Sunday, everyone!  Ann is our fabulous hostess today, and she’s got a wonderful color combo for you! 
And here we go:
PP108 - LeAnne New
I struggled a bit with these colors; I didn’t want to make a patriotic-themed card, and finally decided on making another vintage-style with Postage Due, French Foliage, Artistic Etchings and Tiny Tags.  The sentiment is from a retired set called Small Sayings.  That pretty Cherry Cobbler DP is from the new Festival of Prints pack available in the new Holiday Mini.  I love that it can be used for more than just Christmas!  I hope Ann doesn’t mind that I added a neutral Very Vanilla in the mix!  This is also for the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge #24, which is vintage travel!

Be sure to see what the others at the Paper Players have come up with this week.  They’ve got a nice array of wonderful creations that are sure to inspire you!

This is my favorite set that I don't own. :) I never thought I'd like when browsing the catalog, but it makes such gorgeous cards like this one. It's definitely going on my wishlist. LOVE it in these colors. Great card my friend!

Love your card! I thought SCH as soon as I saw the picture of it. And the ever cute, ever curious Miss Cassidy -- precious!

My style is not a vintage collage look...but I find your card truly stunning! The layers and stamps all work together perfectly! I'm going to have to take a second look at these sets!

Oh no.......it said there was an error when I tried to post so now I don't know if you even got my comment.
I was saying how much I love this vintage card. I love the 4 postage pieces and the sponging. They are beautiful. Now I'm thinking I'm thinking I have to add some items to my already long "must have" list.

LeAnne, this set hadn't been on my "want" list. You made me realize that it should be on there! It's a gorgeous card. I love the multiple stamps and that you kept everything to one side of the layout. Gorgeous.
Hugs
