Emma's Crafty Challenge #14

Welcome to another challenge at Emma's Crafty Challenge.
Thank you to all who took part in last month's challenge, the lucky winner will be announced shortly. This month we have another fabulous theme. We would like to see your "Vintage" projects. Your entry doesn't have to be a card, any new crafty creation on this theme is welcome.
Our generous sponsor this month is Debbi Moore who is offering Issue 9 of her Inspiration magazine, including the free CD. Plus the Shabby Chic Butterflies and Flowers CD and the Shabby Chic Victorian Botanical CD. Isn't that a wonderful prize?
To give you some inspiration I have made this card.

I started with my favourite 8"x 8" card blank and tinted the edges with Distress Ink Antique Linen. I used two papers from MCS Quintessential Garden and another paper that was a free download from C&C a few years ago.  

I created the postcard in MCS with the verse and a rose image. I distressed the edges with my scissors.  I used the edge of my Visible Image Grunge Flourish stamp and gilding flakes from IndigoBlu on a few of the corners and a die cut butterfly from Joy Crafts.  

To finish off the card I embellished a bottom corner with another rose, a Cheery Lynn leaf flourish, a feather and a handmade stick pin.


To be in with a chance to win this fabulous prize from Debbi Moore  just enter your "vintage" creation at Emma's Crafty Challenge  blog before the end of the month. You will also find a full set of rules there and more gorgeous inspiration from the rest of the design team.
