Crafty Friends / New Challenge


I have some exciting news to share.  A few of us girls got together and have started a new challenge called Crafty Friends Challenges.  The challenges will differ and it will be bi weekly.  This week the theme is "Vintage".  Something that I am very familiar with and absolutely LOVE!

I used a set from Flourishes called From The Desk Of.  I love the pretty vase of flowers and old Calligraphy pen.  I have not used this image before because it tends to be on the bigger side and every time I have tried to use it, I have not found a way to incorporate it without it taking over the whole card.  So I basically cut around it leaving the white inside.  I am not the best with a craft knife, so I don't even go there!  Papers are a combo of MME and card stock is Stampin' Up for the brown and PTI for the Kraft.

The sketch at The Deconstructed Sketch was a perfect match for my image.

Make sure you stop by the rest of the fabulous design team to see what they have created.
