Vintage Card

Sorry this is a long post...I've always wanted to try and make a vintage card but never got the chance until this weekend. I came across another card but can't remember which site it was. I made it sort of similar to it but it wasn't a vintage card like I wanted so I had to change the colors from whatever colors that I had and create something of my own. It wasn't easy coloring the image "Pink Gem Designs" (Chloe) as I tried it twice and trashed the first image because I didn't like the colors. I used Tim Holt distress ink - "Tattered Rose"- and Stampin Up - "Soft Suede" colors for the edges of the whole card. The DP is from K&Company thatI picked up in Las Vegas. I made most of the roses from ribbon except the smaller ones. The bows are "Very Vanilla" seam binding from Stampin Up. The butterflies are Martha Stewart and CherryLyn Designs dies that I ordered online. I also used liquid pearls "white opal" on the butterflies. Thiscard turned out really special that I want to keep it for myself. Unfortunately, I can't because we have a card swap for a bunch (12) of my co-workers and on Monday 10/3 is when we are going to swap cards by picking names. If I pick my own name YAY!!! I get to keep it....lol!! I hope whomever gets it will like this card. Thank you all for stopping by to check out my creations. Your support is very much appreciated! Have a Great Week!!

Woo hoooooo, what a fabulous card. I must weigh 3 lbs. with all the beautiful embellies. :-)
I too would want to keep it for myself. How FUN to have co-workers who share the same interest. Hope you pick your own name. :-)

Wow Elena this vintage card came out so beautiful. Good thing you got lots of pictures in case you don't get it back. Can't wait to see the next vintage card you make in the future.:0)
