Color Throwdown 140

DSCF6044

I have been itching to do a vintage card, and when I saw Barbara’s colors for the CTD this week:

swatch 140

I knew this was the right palette!  I have been wistfully gazing at the Funkie Junkie, Cherry’s Jubilee and Simple Treasures for some inspiration…they all seem to have that lovely vintage style down pat.  So I pulled out some Crafty Secrets goodies I recently got and went to work:

I’m pretty happy with the results.  I don’t have any Blushing Bride ink, only Patterns designer paper, but this CS image had all the colors I needed!  I did color the little flowers around the edge with a Pink Pirouette marker, and it seems to match fairly well.  I dyed some felt with Baja Breeze ink to make my little leaves; the rest is just bits and bobs from my stash.

All other stamped images are various PTI sets; the musical BG is from Cornish Heritage Farms.  Email me if you have questions!

LeAnne, This card is GORGEOUS. Just like Ann said it is a masterpiece! Can you tell me how you made your seam binding look so old and shriveled up? I love your little felt leaves and all the layering. Just Beautiful.

Oh LeAnne!! That is such a lovely card!! Wonderful colors and design - great job! Cassidy is certainly considering something serious (like how to convince you to give another cookie maybe) Give that dumpling an extra hug for me!

Your vintage card is absolutely stunning in these gorgeous colors, but where did you find that baby picture of me to put on the front?! *snort* Sowwy, I couldn't resist :) That little GD of yours is so photogenic!! What a cutie pie!
