RR111 Beauty in All Things

Happy Tuesday, peeps! It's time for another fun RetroRubber challenge...a tic-tac-toe!  Check it out:

No photo description available.

I chose the diagonal line of Tone-on-Tone, Flowers and Sponging!  I managed to do quite a bit of the tone-on-tone and sponging, LOL!  So here's my creation:

The rose image is from Unity's Kit of the Month for June, 2011....I stamped it in Versamark ink on our new Rococo Rose, cut it with a stitched rectangle die and sponged the edges.  My Sahara Sand card base was stamped with the Floral background stamp (2005) in Sahara Sand ink, and it was sponged too!  The Soft Suede panel was stamped with the French Script background stamp (2006) and it was liberally sponged too!  My white doily was sponged with Crumb Cake ink to give it a vintage feel, and these retired organdy roses were glued on and sprinkled with some vintage glitter after being brushed with some glue:

I added a little braided twine trim to finish it off!  The inside is blank, because I haven't quite decided for what occasion I'll use this! I haven't done a vintage piece like this for a long time, it was fun to do!  I hope you'll play along with our challenge too!  Just remember that your stamps must be at least a year old....not ancient like mine, just at least a year!  Share it with us at Retro Rubber...can't wait to see what you create!

So we have had this crazy robin around our house, I think I mentioned it in an earlier post....he has made a nuisance of himself, sitting on our car mirrors and making a mess:

On Saturday, I ran some errands and left my car out while I unloaded things from the back; I left it in the drive with the windows partially down.  When I went to get back in the car to go to a banquet at church, the robin was INSIDE MY CAR!!!!


He was right next to the open window, but couldn't quite figure out how to get out.  I had to open two doors before he flew out.   And yes......he pooped ALL OVER the inside!!  But it was really funny!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

Oh, my, I never saw that coming...silly goose...I mean silly robin! Great pics. I'll have to go back and read your post again because, I will admit, I went right to the photos! Have a blessed day and you continue to put a smile on my face.

I'm back...had to do that so I didn't forget! How will you ever get your beautiful vintage card into an envelope? or will you keep it on display?

Dawn Tidd said...

Gorgeous vintage card! That rose is so pretty stamped on the Rococo Rise card stock with the shimmering flowers to set them off. I always love your vintage cards! That robin is a mess! Glad you got a laugh out of watching him!

Tracy Grauer said...

Lovely vintage card. I just love a vintage look. What a funny bird! I'm glad you could laugh about the messiness :)

LeAnne, Moral of this story....Never let your car become a 'birdhouse'!...Funny for us, but I bet it wasn't funny when you had to clean up after your little visitor!...

Lisa Elton said...

This is feminine and lovley LeAnne! Oh NO to the bird poop, glad you could laugh at it!!

Linda Callahan said...

You do vintage perfectly! And what’s up with that robin? So funny!

I'm glad that you could find the humour in the Robin pooping in your car! Funny thing, this morning on my way to work, I went into the bank and there was a baby bird outside, who obviously fell out of a nest - where in the Center of Manhattan would that be?! Anyway, I scooped him up and placed him near a tree - fingers crossed his momma found him. Back to your card, which I love. Great shabby chic feel and that pink panel is perfection and pops so well.
