Kewl Goes Vintage

Hi Stamping Friends!

Well I have another vintage card for you.  Today's card combines two challenges.  The color challenge comes from the KEWL COLOR challenge blog.  The colors to use are Kraft, Very Vanilla, Soft Suede, Bordering Blue, and Bashful Blue.  The sketch comes form the MOJO MONDAY challenge blog. 






Here's my card:


I think I might finally be getting the hang of this Vintage thing!  This sketch has a lot going on, so I kept my main image pretty simple.  The bird and the damask image come from the Friends 24-7 set.  I was so happy to hear that Soft Suede will be returning to the next big SU! catalog as a "core" color.  It is the best color brown for distressing stuff.  The card base is Soft Suede layered with Kraft that was stamped with the Bella Toile Bg stamp.  The DSP comes from the Bella Bleu pack.  I've had it forever and this is the first time I've ever used it!  I just had to add a Very Vanilla satin ribbon to the top.  It looked so lonely without it!  If you are looking for some inspiration, try partcipating in a couple of blog challenges.  They are a ton of fun and really bring you out of your box!

Happy Stamping!
