Hey, everyone! Happy hump day! It's been a crazy couple of days weather wise around here. We've had high winds and storms, which knocked out our cable & Internet connections (and no, I don't live out in the country either). I'm hoping it's up and running again soon...I missed Glee last night!
My card for today plays along with two challenges: Embellish magazine's vintage color challenge and Etsy Inspired #111.
When I first saw this color combo, I was stumped. Add in the fact that I don't do vintage, and yes, I had a true challenge on my hands.
Once I started searching around this week's Etsy shop, Stilettoheights, I began to think maybe I could combine the two challenges.
I chose this print as my inspiration.
I started with some Pink Paislee paper. It was already distressed, but I added my own touch by inking the edges and adding a few smudges.
I used a birdcage stamp I found in the dollar bin at Michaels, along with a couple of sentiments from another set. I added the pearls and ribbon to finish it off. For not being a vintage girl, I think it turned out okay.
What do you think?
