You've Got Mail with a Touch of Vintage

 
Closeup of Sentiment

I made this card 5.5' x5.5" which is a larger size than I usually do but I wanted to better use the pattern paper design from K&Company.  I printed this image "You've Got Mail" from Digi Doodle Shop and colored with Copics. Love the old fashion Morning Glory vine and flowers by the mailbox which has a vintage used  look.  After cutting the design with Spellbinders Label 4,  I sponged it with Antique Linen and Tea Dye distress inks to give an aged look.  I placed on a small doily that I sponged the same. Placed this on a circle of gold CS to better show the design. Now back to this lovely pattern paper...think it has a great vintage look...I embossed it with Cuttlebug's Kassie's Brocade EF and the Border Dot  from With Love EF on the outer stripes in the paper. After placing the pattern on a card base of ivory (edged with the Antique Linen ink) I popped up the image with dimensionals and added a gold seam binding bow accented with a jeweled brad and small crochet flower.  The sentiment from Mark's Finest Papers "Happy Pansies" was stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa on a strip of the PP and attached. Thought this font had a vintage flavor.
Challenges:
Sugar Creek HollowDo vintage, shabby chic, or primitive card with embossing. Someday, I am going to figure out how to do a primitive one. This week Digi Doodle is a sponsor.
Party Time Tuesday: Use a feathered friend on your card. Digi Doodle is also one of the sponsors.
Digi Doodle Shop's Best Challenge: Use embossing.  Is this what is meant by killing two birds with one stone?

 I enjoy all your comments. Thank you. Theresa
