Yet another post for today! Vintage Hope......

One more to show you for today -

I wanted to use this neat digi from Simple Doodles - it is a freebie for the entire month of October if you head over to Hand full of Stamps to get before it is gone. The challenge for using this digi on a card ends tomorrow, so I needed to get a post up ASAP. I am trying to get back to my stamping roots a bit - do a bit more of my shabby/vintage style of papercrafting.

As I started working with this image, the pieces just came together. The main image was sprayed with my ink squirty tool in gray and then edged in cotton candy stickles. I broke into my beloved Daisy D's paper stash, wrinkled up this piece, distressed it first with sahara ink and then gold. The gold doesn't show in the scan but shows up ever so lightly in irl. I didn't glue the edges all the way down to add to the shabby feel. The card base was sponged and edged in vanilla craft. I added a Prima that was lightly sponged with the same gold ink and a crown sticker that was inked with brown staz-on to age it. To properly finish off the card, I added some vintage lace from my Etsy stash and this wonderful old earring find. It just seemed perfect for the flower!

Make sure you schedule your mammy and do your monthly checks. You are important to me!!! :)
