Vintage Gem

Hi everyone. My latest card follows the latest Waltzingmouse sketch challenge.



I have been feeling that my mojo has gone lately....partly due to the fact I am exhausted and it is nearly the end of term.

My first card attempt felt good in theory, but ended up in the bin! My second attempt is the card that I am sharing with you. I really do like this colour combination and feel that this card is what I was aiming for. I wanted to depart from my usual pastel coloured creations and have a more vintage feel this time. Here is a close up...

It is nearly school holidays and hopefully my mojo will be back. Sleep, rest and time...can't wait!

Supplies:

Stamps: Waltzingmouse Stamps Vintage labels 10 and Fancy Phrases

Ink: Stampin' Up! Cherry Cobbler, Versafine onyx black

Paper: Kaisercraft December 25th Faith, DCWV brights, Stampin' Up Real Red

Other: Spellbinders Nestabilities labels ten, Stampin' Up! real red ribbon, Bow Easy, die cut butterfly, Rosie's diamonte brad, Francheville Passionate rhinestone stickers.

Thanks for stopping by!
