Card Patterns Sketch Challenge 78

Well, I'm getting in just "under the wire" with this entry for the Card Patterns Sketch 78...I think it closes Friday evening.  You can see the sketch and get the details here.  As soon as I saw the sketch, I knew I wanted to participate!
I had to leave work early today for a dentist appointment.  Not fun, but I do have a great dentist and dental assistant - which makes the visit a lot easier!  Anyway, I got home and had a little extra time before dinner.  So...I treated myself to a little stamping time!
This card fun to make.  I used some BoBunny printed paper that I picked up recently (so pretty).  This paper has a vintage look, which was just the direction I wanted to go.  I picked up a box FULL of vintage lace at an estate auction in July, and I've been SO wanting to dig into it!  This was the perfect opportunity.  I also pulled out a vintage button (from another auction a few years ago).  I am so pleased with how this card turned out.  I hope you like it, too!
The recipe ~
card stock: real red, very vanilla, always artichoke (SU)
printed paper: noel holly (BoBunny)
ink: riding hood red, always artichoke (SU)
stamps: tiny tags
accessories and tools: dies (Spellbinders), big kick (sizzix), tacky tape, pop dots, vintage lace and button, linen thread


  1. Very Pretty! Good luck with your challenge!

  2. That's a beautiful paper all right!!! Love the lace and the small tags with sentiment! Thanks for playing along with Card Patterns this week!
