This image if from one of my favorite sites: Digital 2 For Tuesday. Cora does an amazing job searching out these beautiful vintage images. She shares them with all of us for FREE! Be sure to visit her.
I created this card for the Come And Get It challenge. It is a Hostess' Choice this week! So many choices. As a typical woman I changed my mind many times as I created this card. I ended up using:
You only have to use 3 choices, so have fun with it!
I used my favorite Cloud Stencil which I bought from CTMH back at the turn of the century. The cardstock is also CTMH. I used new thick thread that I picked up at Hobby Lobby to sew the background together. The dark paper is from Colorbox at Walmart, and the vintage beige is from Melissa Frances' Vintage Attic Treasures collection.
I used pearls I got at Hobby Lobby, and made a banner out of kraft, with stamps from Crafty Secrets.
The friends are colored with Prismacolor Pencils and Mineral Spirits. The ribbon is Offray and the 2 punches are from Martha Stewart. I distressed with Vintage Photo Distress Ink by Ranger, and used sand paper to distress the black Core-dinations paper.
