Friday Mashup Vintage Flowers

Its the best day of the week again, Friday! You know what that means...its time for another Friday Mashup challenge and this week Kathy is bringing it to us and boy did she send me out of my comfort zone with this one! Kathy says to:

1. Create a project with a vintage look
2. Create a project with flowers
3. Create a project with a vintage look that also uses flowers!

This one really had me stumped for a bit because while I like the look of vintage cards I'm not good at making them, and while I love flowers its generally not something I put on my cards. I started 2 or 3 cards before I finally ended up with this one, and even this card isnt my normal style as the only stamping involved is the sentiment! That is totally not me...usually I pick the stamps that have a lot of detail and need coloring for my cards. This card is all stickers and die cuts! Hope you like husband actually did so I figured I did okay if he liked it, LOL.

Now head over to The Friday Mashup , check out all the other great cards by the rest of the design team and play along with us!

Supplies used(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: sentiment from Thanks For Caring
Paper: Crumb Cake, Old Olive
Ink: Chocolate Chip, Baja Breeze
Accessories: Flower stickers from K&Company, Sizzix Branch w/leaves die, small oval punch, dimensionals, sponge, Color Sprizter tool



  1. WOW! The texture...the shimmer...this is sooooooo lovely!!
