Hey Girlfriend!

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. 

I am entering this card in some challenges:
Pixie Dust Studio - Anything Goes
Simply Create - Anything Goes
Shelly's Images-Tic Tac Toe (punch, craft, digi)
Gem of a Challenge - For the Girls
Catch the Bug - Anything Goes
Craftymess - Anything Goes
