Vintage Potpourri

Another Saturday, another challenge from the gals at Our Creative Corner. I missed last week because I was under the weather, but I'm joining this month's hostess, Linda Coughlin, in this week's color challenge: rust, gold, blue and brown. I used Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Baja Breeze and Early Espresso, and I broke out the level 1 hostess set called Punch Potpourri for the first time.

I used three of the images in the stamp set and the coordinating punches - the card stock is white but I really dirtied it up with espresso ink because I wanted to use the crochet trim and not have the white pop out too much. I added an espresso brad to the flower, a branch from the bird punch, and a wing punched from a scrap of Autumn Spice paper. Then I repeated that designer paper and also used a panel of Cajun Craze and some retired Baja Breeze for the background. The sentiment is from Well Scripted (retired) and I used the Lots of Tags oval die for the frame. Finally I added three adhesive pearls as an accent. I toyed with adding more to the card but then decided it was perfect as is.

Please come and play along with the rest of the OCC girls - and don't forget to stop by and see what everyone else made with these colors!

Hope you are feeling better, Lori. We missed you last week. I am absolutely love with your beautiful card. What a delightful combination of patterns and textures. Wonderful vintage feel to it. I just got that set and now I can't wait to use it.

I love this card! The design is visually interesting, and I love how you incorporated the images from this stamp set into a vintage style card. It is fabulous!
