Whimsical Designs "Vintage" Challenge

This week over at Whimsical Designs we are going "Vintage"

Our challenge this week is to create a project with a vintage feel. So get that shabby chic mojo flowing and come and join us with your old fashioned creation.

Our sponsor for this weeks challenge is Scrapping Memories and the winner will receive 5 files of their choice!!

For my card I picked some papers by Authentique and 7 Gypsies. I sewed some lace to one of the papers and did some inking, some layering and some more sewing. I topped it with a vintage frame by Melissa Frances and put a pretty little epoxy sticker by SEI, tied with a bow, inside the frame. Added a couple vintage buttons tied together with twine. For the finishing touch I stamped one of Stepahnie's sentiment stamps from her Everyday Sentiments set.

Supplies used: card stock - blue; patterned papers - Clean and Clear from Fresh by Authentique, Orchestra by 7 Gypsies; ribbon and lace trim - Michaels; Vintage Frames by Melissa Frances; twine - Liz's Paper Loft Boutique; epoxy sticker in Lovebirds by SEI; stamp - Everyday Sentiments by Whimsical Designs; ink - Tuxedo Black by Memento and Cocoa by ColorBox; sewing machine.

Now please head over to Whimsical Designs and take a look at all of the beautiful "Vintage" creations the design team has come up with!!

Also take a look at the Book Of the Month challenge we are starting this month!!! If you like to read, this will be a fun challenge for you:) Hope you'll join us!!!!
