Vintage Vogue & Vintage Wallpaper

  I made this card a week or 2 ago using a sketch challenge over at Pals Paper Arts.  You might remember my Aviary Owl Thank You card which used the same sketch.  Isn't it cool how different it looks when you change the colors and stamp set?

  Anyway, I had the large Rich Razzleberry flower left over from a previous project so I wanted to try to use it up.  It was already cut out and I can't seem to throw anything away.  I looked in my Idea Book & Catalog to see how they used the Vintage Vogue set and I got the rest of my colors from one of the samples.  I used the new Vintage Wallpaper Textured Impressions embossing folder for the large Rich Razzleberry background panel.  I added a narrow strip (read- scrap) of textured Rose Red.  Then a larger strip of River Rock that I tore the edges and stamped the vine on it with River Rock ink.  I added a thank you sentiment in Rich Razzleberry that was stamped off once- I didn't want it to be too bold on top of the River Rock. I stamped more vines in River Rock on a Very Vanilla panel and then added my Rich Razzleberry flower.  I gave it 2 friends; one in Bashful Blue & one in Rose Red.  The Rose Red flower is popped on one dimensional and the Bashful Blue one is popped up on 2 (just stack them on top of each other to get more height).  Two cute little Old Olive leaves and the floral portion is finished.

  Now for the embellishments!  The ribbon is Old Olive taffeta wrapped around the floral panel and adhered with a brad.  The End!

  Thanks for looking!  Happy Stamping!
