Vintage Rose


I am so pleased with this one. When I read Joan's challenge #2 the first thing I thought of was ooh No! I don't have the right kind of paper! Well I went through looking at some of my 12x12 and ran across this piece from Anna Griffin. YES! I'm go to go!! I then had no idea where it would take me but hey! I like it! Joan has challenged us to make a Vintage card and to use at least one Spellbinder Nestability. I used 2 hehe. Also used a MS border punch to create my lace. I have got to buy some lace for cards! I love the look just never think of it when I'm shopping. It's that age thing again. The Rose is from Gina K "A Year of Flowers" which I stamped then cut out. I added 3 gorgeous little roses I bought form Joan's Garden and pearls. That finished it off. Oh yeah, I did dry emboss the dp. I love the feel of embossed paper. Don't forget to check out Joan's challenge, of course I could say like a few car racers say, if every body would get off the track I could win LOL. Okay, I'm gone, it's Friday and house cleaning time. If ya want come on over and we'll clean then sit in the chairs from yesterday and let Patti serve us drinks again LOL.

Very pretty -- like your vintage card! Just a suggestion -- write "buy lace" on a sticky note and put it on your purse! How would I know this??? Just guess!
