I seriously LOVE challenges and play one almost every day. I decided to combine a few random challenges into one card today, basically just to see if I could do it! For this card my challenges were:
1. Crafty Secrets "Show Us Your Love"
2. Ways To Use It WT205 - "Fabric"
3. Flourishes Timeless Tuesday "Buttons" or on their blog HERE
4. Caardvarks "We Heart You"
For this card I used the Poppy stamp set from Flourishes for the pretty antiqued flowers. The background paper is from a Crafty Secrets double sided paper pack called Classic. I stamped the flowers on the reverse of the diamond pattern - it has such a vintage look that it worked perfectly with the other details!
The fabric bow is from my Mom's wedding dress. I have parts of it in my craft room and snip bits and pieces of the lace and organdy whenever I want an antiqued look. For this bow I simply gathered a strip of the organdy lining and tied a button to the center and puffed it out. The sentiment was made with one of my recent finds! I was at the Salvation Army store the other day and found a fantastic antique typewriter for only $4.00! I love the idea of being able to type out a sentiment on a little piece of paper rather than running a full sheet through the printer on my computer. Plus I really adore the look of old-fashioned type... it' worked perfectly for this card.
I've been seeing this cool link generator on lots of blogs these days so I had to jump on the bandwagon and add it to mine as well! If you played along with any of these challenges listed above then add your link to my list below.
I changed my mind and decided to give away some blog candy to a randomly choosen link! I have several sheets of Crafty Secrets paper (just like the paper used for this card), some vintage images to go with the paper, and some really cool printed acetate images that look like old fashioned photos. We'll call it my Vintage Giveaway! Simply add a link to one of your cards/projects from any of the above mentioned challenges below and you'll be entered to win.
Thanks for reading and please let me know what you think of my challenge card.
