There are SO many great challenges that I really wanted to join in. But, I had to narrow it down to 3. There just aren't enough hours in this day!
I've combined these challenges in my card today:
Just Us Girls Challenge #78 - here is the great sketch that Kathryn has provided.
The Shabby Tea Room Challenge week #55 - a color challenge (such pretty colors, too).
Paper Players Challenge #41 - Recycling!
Anyway, on to my card.
That's the look I'm going for here. Did I succeed? I hope so...
I've been wanting to use my new Parisian Doily die from Papertrey Ink. So, when I saw the JUGS sketch, it was the perfect opportunity. And, since I was going vintage, the colors at The Shabby Tea Room fit right in. Then when saw that LeAnne was challenging us to recycle...well...it fit into the card that I wanted to create. Don't you love it when a plan comes together? I know, it took several hours, but it did FINALLY come together...lol...
The white heart is cut from a recycled piece of packing material. I sponged the edges with ink, then sprinkled on some glass glitter. The white lace near the bottom of the card, and all 3 of the buttons (I got a jar full!) are from estate auctions. I added a little glass glitter to the center of the white button. Up at the top of the card, over the pink tulle, I wrapped some vintage ribbon, that is also from an estate auction. I just have to show you a picture of the spool. I love the graphics. Take a look...
Thanks so much for taking a look at my art. I hope you'll stop in again!
