Second Post

Well - two posts in one day.  This is because the Addicted to Stamps challenge finishes today so tomorrow will be too late.  Yet again I've managed to cover two challenges, the second one being the Twinchies Autumn theme so you can guess that the little leaf image on this card measures two inches (sorry I stuck it onto the card before scanning for the twinchies link.)  The stamp used is from Stampin' Up Faith in Nature set, stamped twice and layered for dimension, with the quote on the card being from the same set.  I must say this clean and simple style is not really a favourite with me but it is good to venture outside the comfort zone now and again.

Vintage Fashion

The Make My Monday challenge is back after a well deserved break and their theme for this month is VINTAGE with VINTAGE FASHION being the specific topic for this first week. The card I've made also qualifies for Judith's Forgotten Friday because I've used images and backing paper from Joanna Sheen's Fashion Boutique CD set and I just can't remember when I last put these discs into the computer!! Two sizes of image have been printed and I've added a layer of card embossed using a Cuttlebug folder, vintage lace and  some paper flowers with a diecut leafy frond using a Marianne die. The MMM design team have made some lovely cards for inspiration - well worth a look and of course Judith is posting examples of her DT work for Chocolate Baroque using new seasonal stamps.
