Trying Vintage

card in vintage style with dogwood flower in neutrals
welcome to my new followers! i appreciate your taking an interest in what i do.

i’ve been playing along with magenta’s 20th anniversary monthly challenges all year and this month’s theme is vintage, which i keep saying i can’t do but it’s fun trying. i stamped the magenta flower twice, heat embossed it and sponged it a bit and layered it. i’ve had this memory box corner die for a while, but just couldn’t find a way to fit it onto a card until now and i’m glad i have it. the edges are all distressed and sponged and i added some lace, although i feel like i should’ve added more – can vintage be CAS?

i’m also submitting it to these challenges:
the brand new vintage stamping challenge sponsored by flonzcraft – anything goes ends October 31
sweet stampin’  – vintage ends October 5
card crafter’s circle – vintage ends October 4

thanks for popping by.
