Vintage Birthday


Well I decided to tackle the sketch challenge over at Lili of the Valley for this card. I wanted to design a vintage birthday card and used papers from DCWV (glittery paper) and K and Company. I stamped my sentiment (don't know brand) and then stamped some Tim Holtz flourishes to tie in with my flourish cut from the Home Decor Cricut cart. I cut out my sentiment using my oval nesties and layered that on the scalloped oval nestie. I added buttons to help me meet the Pick 3 challenge and eyelets for the centers of my flowers for the Cute Card Thursday challenge. I chose sheer flowers to help with the vintage look and added ribbon to follow my take on the sketch.


Here are the challenges this card is being entered into and links to their fabulous sites:



Stamping Vacation - Pick 3 (actually 5!) - 3 of same type of embellishments; blues and browns,

birthday, button, paper with glitter


Tuesday Taggers - time (vintage)

Cute Card Thursday - metal mania (eyelets)

All Sorts - 3, 2, 1 - 3 flowers, 2 buttons, 1 color of ribbon



Thanks for taking a peek...
