Vintage Friday-Thinking of You



I had so much fun making this card! It was inspired by one of my blogging friends and her love of vintage themed things. I got sucked in to a couple of sites she has listed for free clip art and saved a ton of images and printed this one out to play with right away. Thanks Tina for the inspiration!

Lots of stitching, distressing and stamping on this one. I love Cornish Heritage Farms stamps as I'm sure you've figured out;) I used two wonderful backgrounders on this, the Sophisticated Swirls and French Script. The sentiment is from Clear Art Stamps, Rosy Wishes set. It is a very vintag"y" feeling set so I thought the font looked good. The flourish was cut with my Cricut using Storybook and the lace is a MS border punch as is the tiny butterfly. The pretty stick pin is from my Paper Blooms shop. I then inked and ripped and distressed to give it that shabby chic look. I hope you like it! It's almost the weekend, yea!
