Going Vintage

Hi there!

Today I have a card that is a little unlike what I usually do. It is a lot more vintage than usual. But I wanted to play along with a few chaellenges and thought I would do well to push myself out of my comfort zone. I am going to enter this card into 3 challenges.

This week A La Card Monkey has gone vintage.

The 2-4-6 challenge over at The Shabby Tea Room also caught my eye. The criteria is 2 different patterned papers, 4 buttons and 6 layers. There is also a cute inspiration pic.

Deesigns by Nina Dee has a weekly ribbon challenge, this week it is pleated ribbon.

Here is my card:

The coloured rose was inspired by the magnificent Teneale Williams. Although mine is nothing on hers! I need a lot more practice at colouring!

I have used the Brights DSP stack (old olive) and I cracked open my packet of the ever so lovely Lap of Luxury DSP.

It isn't easy to see in the pics but I have sponged the edges of the cardstock/DSP in Old Olive and the Doily in Crumbcake. The bottom left hand corner of the DSP is also rolled.

Here is a close up of the details:

(All SU unless otherwise stated)
Stamp sets: 5th Avenue Floral, Bliss (on jewllery tags)
Cardstock/ DSP:  Very Vanilla, Old Olive, Brightd DSP stack (Old Olive), Lap of Luxury
Inks: Basic Grey, Elegant Eggplant, Crumbcake Old Olive (sponge edges of card)
Markers:  Certainly Celery (to colour seam binding)
Accessories: Basic Pearls, Seam Binding, Jewllery Tag Punch, Doily die (own stash), Linen Thread, Buttons (own stash), Top Note Die, Leaves (own stash), life trinket pin (own stash)

Please contact me if you require any info and feel free to leave me a comment, I love reading them!

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. Beautiful card, Sarah. These are my favorite colors - green and purple. You did a great job for going outside of your comfort zone, and hitting three challenges with one card is great too! Thanks for playing!!!
