Vintage Style Again!


Hello Everyone, yes I'm smiling. We now have a new router and my computer problems are now fixed. So heres a quick make as I'm ontop of my chores and even spent several hours yesterday blitzing my kitchen and pulling out al the cupboards. It looks like a showroom atm.

Back to my card, just made it up as I went along. Used my new Go Kreate Die to cut the card. 
Added lots of embellishments and dies. Loads of Glimmer Mists (though not picked up well on the camera), Lace, WO Flowers, Gold Adirondaak Dabber and of course you can tell the sentiment is the same as my last card. LOTV of course but I just love what it says.

Heres a list of challenges;
The Paper Shelter - Distress to Impress
Simon Says - Sparkle and Shine
Crafts and Me - Anything Goes
Paper Pretties - Flowers
Kaboodle Doodle - Tic-Tac-Toe (Tag,Diecut,Lace)
Lets Ink it Up - Focal Sentiment and 3d flower
Anything Goes - Bingo Board (Lace,Flowers,Diecuts)
Paperminutes - Brown
The Shabby Tea Room - Monochromatic
Creative Stamp Friends - My Favourite Colour
Creative Craft Challenge - Vintage/Distressed
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
DYSU - Add a Tag
PaperPlay - Anything Goes

Now going to catch up with your lovely blogs and will be back in the morning with my LOTV DT card, oh and back to cute.
Enjoy the rest of your day and thanks for looking!

Hugs

Lin said...

OMW this is just amazing!!!! Gorgeous, stunning. Bet you can't tell I adore it!

Sadly, in order to qualify at Crafty Cardmakers it would need to meet our challenge rules, one of which is not to enter more than ten challenges, including our own. Such a shame cos it's a real corker.

I do hope we will see you back again really soon though.
