Vintage Lily Of the Valley

This week's Papertrey Chicks challenge is another design team member CASE challenge. Cari chose this card by Debbie Olson for us to CASE:


And here's my card:

I love Debbie's classic style, which often goes to vintage--which I love--so I chose to go more vintage-y with mine. First, I utilized some Websters Pages patterned paper for my base and let the design work for me instead of stamping a design. I did use the same Nestabilities dies, but instead of stamping text, I used a page from my trusty old book. I used the Lily of the Valley set instead of Sweet Peas and finished up with twill and a button. Base card is Kraft.

Thanks for stopping by! I'll have a Stamp Simply challenge for you bright and early tomorrow--hope to see you back then!

These cards are "OVER THE TOP" beautiful~~ I love how you have the image die cut. If I were in college I could write an essay about these cards~~ and get an A+

  16. OK, just went back and took another look, I had the cards mixed up, I thought yours was the top and Debbie's was the bottom (a high compliment indeed, eh?) I LOVE the vintage look you achieved Barbara, and I do own Lily of the Valley, I really need to get it out and ink it up!
