Vintage for Paper Pals and SC319








It's Friday, finally. It has been a long and busy week and I am ready for some down time. Today I have a card I made for a couple different challenges. One is a sketch challenge at Splitcoast Stampers(SC319) and the other is for Paper Pals , the challenge was to make a vintage card. This DSP from Springtime Vintage and is available in the Occasions Mini Catalog. My great grandmother had a dress that was almost this same pattern, in fact I have a belt that went with the dress and it has just a little bit of orange in it but the flowers and the background are almost identical to this paper. Maw, as she was known to everyone, lived to be 104 and had 9 children of her own, raised 6 children for her daughter who died during childbirth, raised 8 children for her son who died in a train accident(one of these was my Dad), and raised 4 children for her niece who died at the age of 22. So this card is in honor of her. 

I used Crumb Cake for the base layer, Springtime Vintage for the second layer, and then an embossed strip of Rose Red.  The ribbon is Always Artichoke seam binding and it is threaded through a slit in the Designer Label punched piece.  A few pearls and a dotted scallop border and it is done.  Hope you like it.
