The Paper Players are having their 400th challenge this week, and I'm participating in their giveaway. I decided to make a card using the sketch from Sunday Stamps and the colors from As You See It. I took some liberties because I wanted to do the Retro/Vintage theme from Pile It On. It's been a while since I really distressed and embellished a card... usually I'm all CAS, so this may not be SUPER vintage, but it is compared to my growing stash of cards.
I saw this Paper Garden stamp set lying around, and I thought it looked pretty vintage, and the flower fit the sketch well, so I cut them out with my Cricut and then stamped them with Hollyhock. The centers are stamped in Creme Brulee. I remembered my Lucy paper pack used these colors, and had a vintage look to it. I only had small scraps left, but it was enough. I used a colonial white background, and stamped it with a script background stamp in Creme Brulee. Then I distressed the outside of the card and the flowers with chocolate ink. I finished it off with antiqued copper corners and black ribbon.
