Another vintage challenge on 365 cards, and this time the accent color is green. I found this terrific premade tag that reads "Romance" in my stash and changed the ribbon to green. I found this bag of tatting that I purchased at an estate sale and added it to the collage for it's antique and delicate feel. The closest flower I had to the one in the picture is a dogwood which I liked, and added a little green button to the center completing this wonderful anniversary card.

Again 365 cards has me digging in my vintage stash for something pink! I found this wonderful old card that I thought I would re-purpose one day, so I did just that. I trimmed it down and added the sentiment "Just for You" along with a little old locket and some pearl accents. The result is a very feminine card that can be used for any occasion.

365 cards had me digging in my vintage storage bin, and I found this fantastic 1950's Princess Phone key chain in the color blue! While reading over my sentiment stamps I spotted "It's been too long" and had to laugh out loud at what a great play on words that would make ~ "growing old waiting for you to call me back ~ kind of thing!" I kept the rest of the card simple so the focus would be on the phone and the sentiment.

I made this happy orange birthday greeting for two challenges today:
Bearly Mine Challenge 17 "Bring on the Bling"
Anything Goes Challenge #47 "HAPPY BIRTHDAY/CELEBRATION"
I was wondering what I was going to use those big flat rhinestones on that I found while out treasure hunting! I've been wanting to make a card with this pretty birthday sentiment too, I really like the scripted font.

Here is the sketchy sunday challenge on 365 cards: I used Heidi Swapp paper and a "Lovey Dovey" stamp by Stampin up, and I think the result would make a great anniversary or wedding shower card. Isn't this a great sketch?!

Yesterdays challenge on 365 cards was to create a card in 30 mins. or less.
Ok, so I wanted to try to play with alcohol inks on glossy paper...so I played and played and I think I over played! Anyway, I stamped my dragonfly and added stickles to his wings and bling to his head and "thanks" as a sentiment. Yes, it was less then 30 mins and I had fun creating... I'm not in love with the outcome, but I enjoyed the process!
