Vintage {?} CR84FN...

My card today uses the current color combo from CR84FN12 combined with the current Stampin Sisters in Christ challenge to make it vintage and the current Card Patterns sketch.   My card, to a certain extent, is about as "vintage" as I can get.  I'm a CAS kinda girl and doing shabby chic/vintage is a real struggle for me.  To make my card fit the vintage idea I ink distressed the edges of the main panel with Ranger's Old Page distress ink.  I also inked the edges of the little flower that I made.  The stamped image (from Hero Arts - Classic Fabric Design) does have a very vintage sort of feel too it.  The addition of some crocheted lace and the pins add a bit more to the vintage look. 



I flipped the Card Patterns sketch so that the circle element is on the other side of the card because I have a habit of tying my bows so they end up on the righthand side of the card!  For some reason a bow on the righthand side is just more pleasing to me.    Finally, I'm going to put this in the current Moxie Fab Tuesday Trigger challenge as it fits that challenge, as well (sorry I don't have the Trigger graphic... I kinda ran out of room!).   And, eeekk!!  Cath picked my card from last week's Tuesday Trigger challenge as a trigger target!!  How cool is that????

Thanks for taking a peek...  have a Moxie Fab day!!

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI Kraft & white; Stamps:  Hero Arts Classic Fabric Design; Stampin Up! (best wishes sentinment); Ribbon:  May Arts crochet & PTI Sweet Blush grosgrain; PTI flower dies; Stick pins:  Close to My Heart; Ink:  PTI Lavender Moon; Memento Angel Pink; Memento Black

Congrats on being a Trigger Target! It was well deserved.

I don't do vintage very well, but this is soft and lovely! The lace is a nice touch, and the PTI flowers have a very different look the way you've layered them and curled the petals. Very pretty!
