Vintage Flowers

Trying my hand at a couple of challenges and feeling a little vintage today!  Vintage isn't something I do very often because frankly, I like clean and simple and a card taking 20 minutes or less!  With vintage, there is a lot of distressing and sponging and inking.  I was up for it, today, though!

Two different patterned papers from Paper Pizzaz' vintage collection.  I also cut out a tag from the same paper pack.  Stamp is a random one in my stash and made into an embellishment and hemp twine is from SU.

I'm entering this card in these challenges:

'Till next time!

Hi Cely! Thanks for coming by my blog! I love this vintage card! It's my favorite theme. I'm much better at vintage designs than anything else. But you're right it does take a lot of time!

I've never had a problem of having TOO MUCH stuff! Actually, quite the opposite. But I am soon going to offer a blog candy as well just because I'm so excited about having my own space, in a house we don't have to share with anyone (we've always lived in apartments), and just because of all the other exciting events going on like the fact that I'm finally having a girl!
