Vintage at Sweet Stampin'

This is my second post for today, please scroll down to see my Bearicelli card for Di's Digi Designs Challenge.

Today is my last week as Guest Designer for Sweet Stampin' Challenge, and I have to say it's been lovely to be part of the team. Thank you for having me! 

This week our theme is VINTAGE. Now, this is something I don't do very often, I don't know why because everytime I make a vintage style creation I end up really liking it. I love the eclectic mix of embellishments, I always find something in my stash that will fit the bill (well most times unless I'm in a strop, then nothing fits). So for my card I remembered I had some papers from a Norwegian company called 3ndy Papier, which included this adorable little lady, so the card started from there...

I don't have fancy shaped cards, so in case you're wondering, I used a template I found on the Lili of the Valley website HERE. I just drew around it onto my card then carefully (it's a bit fiddly) cut it out. Not bad when you don't have dies to cut the shapes. The tickets were freebies I found a long time ago on the internet... if anyone knows the source please share as I can't for the life of me find the details (I like giving credit to the person who's gone to the trouble of creating then sharing for free).

Pop over to the Sweet Stampin' Challenge blog to check out the rest of the fab vintage DT creations, and to see what lovely goodies are on offer from our kind sponsor!

Enjoy the weekend!
