Crazy 4 Challenges C4C72

Hi blogger friends!

I just found another challenge that looks like fun.  Check out Crazy 4 Challenges Blog thanks to Vicki Dutcher, whose  blog I follow - Vicki is also a fellow CSSDT over at StampTV.  

I was happy to play along with this week's challenge at Crazy 4 Challenges Blog is for a vintage or shabby chic card as these are some of my favorite cards.  I kept this one very simple although it has lots of room to CASE and add more "vintage" to it.  

Details:  Card base is Gina K Pure Luxury CS Chocolate Brown and the pink layer is also GKD PL Soft Pink.  I stamped the Hero Art's French script background on GKD PL layering weight Ivory in with Tim Holtz Distress Ink Walnut Stain.  I stamped the beautiful lady from B Line Designs with Memento Rich Cocoa then layered her in the Chocolate Brown CS cut with a Marvy scalloped oval punch.  Her necklace was popped with Stickles.  The stack of letters stamp, also from B Line Design was also stamped with Memento Rich Coco ink and then cut and popped with pop dots.  The sentiment came from a stamp set designed by Melanie Munchinger entitled "Arranged with Love" for Gina K Design.  I used a Martha Steward doily punch to create the lace effect and all pieces were distressed with Tim Holtz Distress Inks "Antique Linen" and "Tattered Rose".  

Thanks so much for stopping by, and you're invited to follow me, sign my guest book as well as leave a comment.
