A touch of vintage and a sketch


Hello everyone!  I hope your week is going great!  It's snowing here again!  In the 10 years I've lived in NC I have never seen so much snow!  But I'm enjoying it still.  It's beautiful when it's coming down!

Today I'm showing you a card I made for sketch challenge 269 on SCS.  I used my new Layers of Color stamps.... a set called Nature Walk.  I had fun with this one, and love the way the stamps stamp!  The sketch was simple and I didn't layer it up to death! LOL!  My base is Papertrey Vintage Cream, sponged with TH Distress Ink.  I stamped the flourish with Chocolate Chip and Walnut Stain, stamped the flower with Memento, and colored the flower with Copic Marker BG10, then spritzed with Tattered Angels Irredescent Gold Glimmer Mist.  The designer papers are K&Co and My Mind's Eye.  I added some crocheted lace for a slight vintage feel.  I love it when cards just come together quickly!  This one did. 

I am entering this in the following challenges:

Lexi's Creations - Anything Goes
Tellen's Place - Anything Goes
crafty creations: #56 cut it out and pop it up
Practical scrappers: inks.
Crazy 4 Challenges: textures

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a most blessed week!
