A Vintage Challenge, yep...I said Vintage!

Lol! I know.....Vintage is NOT my thing! So go easy on me, K?!

I was just challenging myself for the Moxie Fab Vintage & Shabby Chic Challenge.

Here is what I came up with: I know....it doesn't look like my style at all and that is because it isn't. Needless to say, this was very CHALLENGING! But it was also fun to try.

The image is--Copyright 2000 Denise Van Patten and you can find lots of beautiful images on that site: http://collectdolls.about.com/

I printed the image on Kraft paper and added some crystal stickles (Ranger) to Santa's hat and cuffs. I cut it out with a scalloped die and adhered it it to the cardbase. I used Tea Dye ink (Ranger) to add some age to all the edges of this. Designer paper is from Cosmo Cricket and October Afternoon. The sentiment is a rub on from K & Company.

Well, that is about it. Getting ready to head out to dinner!

Have a great rest of the weekend! Thanks for stopping by!

I don't know, by the looks of this card, I'd say vintage is very much your style. It's gorgeous! Love the sentiment stamped over the music paper. Love the music star. Great embellies and stitching too!

Cammie, It turned out BEAUTIFULLY! I saw right away it was a different style than I am used to seeing you create. However, I give you a 10+ - hehe. I need to go out of my comfort zone more often.

Great Card!
