Vintage, vintage, how I adore thee! :)

for my Paper Cupcakes post, please click here.

Yes, 2 posts today! Mondays and Tuesdays will both have multiple posts from here on out, so I do appreciate all of you who hang in there with me. It means a lot that you come back and visit! :) In fact, next week I am finally going to post my long awaited blog candy. so Aug. 2 you can expect to see a picture that is hopefully filled with lots of goodies for you to possibly win! another announcement will accompany it, so be sure to stop by!

A big announcement comes along with this card today,too, so here we GO!!!!

Leah at Heart Song Designs has so kindly asked me to join her wonderful Design Team!!!! I am thrilled to be part of this wonderful team of women! Leah is such a strong, Christian woman that I have long admired. to work alongside her is an honor indeed! thank you, Leah, for allowing me the privilige of joining your team. I am humbled, truly.

The challenge this week is to create a project that utilizes your favorite techniques and/or Anything Goes. This card encompasses so many of my fave techniques you are going to be hard pressed to keep up! giggles! first off we have this beautiful vintage dress form image, which was just recently released. I added stickles to the ruffles for a little shine. you know I like just a little shine! ;) I used my spica glitter pen on the stand. the entire piece was sprayed with the SU! ink squirty tool and soft suede marker. edges were distressed with my own water/ink technique. love the way it just soaks into the cs to create such a neat look! a vintage dress pattern was used for both bg paper and for the pretty flower. the bg piece was sprayed with walnut ink. the flower was sprayed with rose glimmer mist. a baby prima rose was added to the center and then a scrap of pink organdy ribbon was wrapped around the flower. the other dsp is K & Co. and actually has little bits of glitter on the flowers. trim and buttons are all vintage. I added a little hook for a touch of whimsy! voila! such a girly girly vintage card, that so suits evrything about me! why look at all that glorious PINK that happened to sneak on there....... how did that happen?! wink wink nudge nudge ........

I do hope you will stop over at the Heart Song Design challenge blog to see the other lovely creations by the Design Team. so many of them are also new, so please tell them hello while you are there. and play along if you get the chance. Leah has a free image for you to use if you would like.
