Friend to Friend- Two in One!

Hi Stampers! 
I decided to create one more card this weekend and chose the PP79 Paper Players "Tag It" challenge along with the SR107 Color Challenge from Stamping Royalty (a new challenge site for me).  Again, both sites have fantastic design teams and the samples are beautiful- if you have the time, check them out!

The colors were a bit bold and I wanted to show that even bold colors can create a vintage style card, so once the design was determined, this card was fairly quick to create- a bit of heat embossing, coloring and dry embossing and you are finished!
To create this card:

With Versamark™ ink stamp the floral image from Elements of Style onto a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock that has been trimmed to a tag size.  H­­­­­eat emboss with Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder. Once the embossing powder cools, color the image with Stampin’ Write markers in Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade and Pumpkin Pie. 
Distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and use a Sponge Dauber with Crumb Cake ink to “antique” the edges.  Ink up the background stamp, Netting with Crumb Cake and stamp over the image as well.

Mount onto a piece of Pumpkin Pie DSP and distress the edges.  Attach a part of a doily from Flirtatious DSP (sponged with Crumb Cake ) and mount onto an embossed piece of Tempting Turquoise cardstock (embossed with the Big Shot™ and the Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder). 

Mount onto another piece of the Pumpkin Pie DSP (over a cardstock base), add the sentiment, pearls and bow to finish off the card. 

Stamp Sets:  Elements of Style, Netting (background stamp), Teeny Tiny Wishes

 Ink: Versamark™, Tempting Turquoise, Stampin’ Write Markers- Tempting Turquoise, Lucky Limeade and Pumpkin Pie

Cardstock:  Crumb Cake, Tempting Turquoise, Flirtatious DSP, Pumpkin Pie DSP (retired hostess pack)

Accessories:  Big Shot™, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions™ Embossing Folder, Heat Tool, Stampin’ Emboss® Black Embossing Powder, Distressing Tool, Punches- Modern Label, Word Window, Pearls, Sponge Dauber, 5/8” Pumpkin Pie Satin Ribbon (retired)

Thanks again for stopping by- have a wonderful week!
