Vintage With Sympathy

Hi Stampers!
I created this card using this week’s ColourQ Challenge #CQC71(www.colourq.blogspot.com) along with the Pals Paper Vintage Theme Challenge  PPA80 (http://www.palspaperarts.com/).
I love anything vintage and the colors from this week's ColourQ Challenge were perfect for a soft vintage look.



   To make this card:
De-static a piece of Whisper White cardstock with the Embossing Buddy and stamp the clock image from Sense of Time with Versamark ink and heat emboss with White Embossing powder.







Use Sponge Daubers with Pink Pirouette, Blushing Bride and Pretty in Pink Classic Ink to fill in the clock face.  "Antique" with Crumb Cake ink.   Stamp the butterfly and bee image from Flores Suaves in Crumb Cake ink along with the bird cage from the new set, Nature Walk from the 2011 Occasions Mini.   Spray with Frost White Shimmer Paint and adhere a pearl in the center.

On a piece of Blushing Bride using Crumb Cake Classic Ink, stamp the butterfly, bee and birdcage in a random pattern.  Use the Big Shot and emboss with the Vintage Wallpaper EF - sponge with Crumb Cake ink. 

Using the Big Shot, emboss a piece of Whisper White with the Finial Press EF and a piece of Crumb Cake with the Square Lattice EF.  Punch the Whisper White piece with the Eyelet Border Punch and sponge with Crumb Cake ink.   Layer onto Blushing  Bride and attach the Kraft taffeta ribbon.

Stamp the sentiment in Crumb Cake ink onto Whisper White, lightly sponge with Crumb Cake and punch out using the Modern Label Punch.  Add the pearl to finish the card.

Thanks again for stopping by- enjoy your weekend and God Bless!
