Cupcake Craft Challenge 16

Hello! This week's challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenge is set by me! Yay! I've set the challenge of "Vintage". I thought this would be a real challenge as pretty much all of the cards I've been making for a while have been "cute". However, for all of you addicted to your "cute" style (like me, don't worry I'm not giving it up!!), I've made the challenge as broad as possible by saying if you don't want to do the full vintage style, you can make anything you want as long as it includes one vintage element to it. Hope you'll play along this week with me!

So here is the card I made- I went for the full vintage look! I think this stamp is soooo beautiful and actually doesn't look like a stamp! It's by The Stampsmith and I think she looks so dreamy. I mounted her on some matching card and added this gorgeous corners which were in a Papermania kit with these papers. I inked the edges of the papers with Vintage Photo ink and finally added a sentiment, tag and some lovely gold sheer ribbon. The sketch is based around an old Friday Sketchers sketch I think.

Crafty stash used: Stamp (The Stampsmith); Paper (Papermania); Vintage photo ink (Ranger); Sentiment, tag, photo corners (Papermania); Ribbon (Recycled)

Wow Steph, you do vintage really well. You should venture out more often , I know you have been wanting to for a while. I am so impressed and adore this one. That stamp is awesome but not sure if i can get hold of those stamps as they are American. Love this !! I will think about the challenge and may add one just for you hehehe

Gorgeous card, what an amazing colour combination.

Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog, the answer to your question about the scallopped edges on my tins is - it is not a die cut, I simply cut it out myself!!
