Happy Wednesday, everyone! Time for a lovely new Card Concept Challenge, and Julie has a beautiful theme for us this week:
My inspiration was the whole Thanksgiving feel of the table setting; my first instinct was to print out a vintage Thanksgiving postcard like the one of the plate, but my friend shared some of her older SU stamps with me and I found this beauty in her stash, called Thanksgiving Blessings; I thought it would be nice for a Thanksgiving card, as well as giving me a chance to do some watercoloring!
I would call this style shabby/vintage, as the ribbons are frayed and I did a lot of sponging on the embossed piece....plus the style of the stamp itself lends itself to a vintage look! SO...I hope you'll play along with us at the Card Concept blog, and be sure to tell us what your "style" is...you can find details on the blog! Can't wait to see what you create!
I do love vintage postcards like the ones in the photo above, so I thought I would share a couple from my own collection; these came either from family members or from yard sales and antique shopping. Here's quite the patriotic bird:
Thanks for popping in today--enjoy it and be blessed!
"Enter his gates with thanksgiving and his courts with praise; give thanks to him and praise his name. For the Lord is good and his love endures forever; his faithfulness continues through all generations." Psalm 100:4-5
