First attempt: Vintage!

Hello everyone!

Did you all have a great weekend? Enjoyed yourself?
And... ready for a new week? :)
I've been searching a while for my mojo and yesterday I made this card. Just for fun; no challenge!
I love soft and romantic patterns but I also love everything vintage!

Digging through my stash I found some rhinestones that I bought years ago....
I stumbled upon a sweet and cute vintage image from Crafty Secrets, a chipboard frame and some gingham ribbon and off I went! I inked the chipboard frame with baby blue ink:



My favorite papers from Melissa Frances, some trim, a few stitches ( not perfect but the irregular stitches do have their charm don't you think?) And I love that little splash of red; and using red is a challenge of its own for me! Some white ink on the edges of my kraft card and a few adhesive pearls; that's all!
Here's my card:
(I think it's not too bad for a first attempt; my apologies for the blurry picture...)


 

Time to clean up and folding laundry (.....) ; till soon!
Stella

Such a beautiful card. Don't you love making a card just because you want to - no sketches, no themes to follow ? It's time I did a couple . . .

oh wow♥WOW♥woOOoOooOw! what a gorgeously inspired VINTAGE-themed card! i love every single thing about it, you have really outdone yourself with this one!!! ♥♥♥ (i am all in favor of "aimless" art...just PLAYING around with different styles...and WOW is this card ever a good argument for my case!!!) :)
Michelle said…
OH MY!! Adorable! Love that sweet image! Gorgeous papers and gems!! Love the whole package!
How cute! ANd I was surprised that you thought of this as your first attempt at vintage, because I would put some of your cards in a vintage/shabby chic category and ALL of your cards in a "Gorgeous" category!
