A very very vintage thank you card

I needed a thank you card. well, I actually need several, but needed one for my MIL. then I came across several challenge blogs in the midst of my blurfing this week. Not one to turn down a challenge when I have the time to do it, I decided to try to incorporate them into one card. Now this one is a little more OTT for me than usual, so hold on to your seats before you scroll down. I don't normally go all out frou frou, but I think she will like it. I showed it to the guys and said I thought it looked like Grammy. Tyler proceeded to tell me that "Grammy doesn't look like a card, Mom!" of course he had that sly grin on his face at the time. smart alec..... :D wonder where in the world THAT comes from? hmmmmmmmm.......................... must be the OTHER side of the family. grins!

Anyhow, the paper is from the gorgeous K & Co. Classic Charlotte collection. The watch face (which I distressed with Timber brown Stazon ink and wiped off) & oval bracket are from Making Memories. buttons are Etsy vintage and that gorgeous gorgeous glower is a Prima. I downloaded the photo from The Vintage Moth, a really neat vintage clip art site. The little calendar clip art was a random find through google. The card base was distressed, edges inked with vanilla craft, and then the whole thing sprayed with walnut gold glimmer mist.


Challenges are for Saturday Spotlight - calendar and Stamp, Scrap, and Doodle - use a photo.
