Old Fashioned for Merry Monday

I'm playing along with Merry Monday again and this weeks challenge really had me struggling. I've posted before about how much I dislike ovals...I don't know what it is but I have a horrible time trying to get an image in an oval and looking right. Yesterday morning I started this card and by the end of the day I had gotten rid of the original DSP and stamp set I had started with and ended up with something completely different. It may have taken me all day, with my attention being diverted several times throughout the process, but I am quite happy with the end results. I did turn the sketch but stayed true to everything else about it.

Supplies(all supplies SU unless otherwise noted):
Stamps: Christmas Lodge, Teeny Tiny Wishes
Paper: Sahara Sand, Ruby Red, Whisper White
Ink: Crumb Cake, Ruby Red
Accessories: Coluzzle, Modern Label Punch, Scallop Border Punch, Pearls, sponge, dimensionals



  1. I like this! I love the crumb cake with the red. Very nice! What did you use on the other one?

  2. Lovely card! Love the image.

  3. OH, now that house image is PERFECT for a horizontal oval! And I like the monochromatic scheme you chose to go with, too.

    Thank you so much for playing in the Merry Monday challenge!

  4. Gorgeous! I am glad you persevered because this turned out to be a wonderful card! Thanks for playing with the Merry Monday challenge this week!

  5. Such a elegant card Lisa, no struggle with ovals here! Just love this pretty card! Thank you for joining us at Merry Monday!

  6. I love this, Lisa! Now I want this set for sure!

  7. I'm glad you're happy with the results because this card is beautiful! You may well be the one who pushes me over the edge to wanting this set.
