Naughty or Nice ?

I have to start this post out by saying--
Last year at this time I didn't do vintage cards. I've always loved vintage things, but just didn't seem to be able to jump start any ideas. There are so many talented vintage artists out there and by jumping around in blog land I kind of started dabbling. I haven't mastered the technique just yet, but I think I'm improving.
I got this so cute vintage image from Google images. I just love her saucy pose, her striped stockings, and I wish you could see her red chunky shoes.
I used my Holly Ribbons embossing folder to give the green some texture and one of my favorite corner punches, stamp decorative scissors, ticket stamps. Of course, everything you buy is your favorites or you wouldn't have purchased it :-)

1 Challenge:
Supplies: Ivory Card Blank 4" X 5 1/2" Halcraft, Papers: The Paper Studio-Season's Greetings Paper Pack, Stampin Up-Very Vanilla, Stamps: Whimsy Stamps-Holiday Ticket Sentiments, Ink: Ranger Archival Ink-Sepia, Soft Suede marker, Cuttlebug embossing folder-Holly Ribbons, Marvy decorative corner punch, Fiskars stamp decorative scissors, Creative Impressions-heart brad, jewelry cord-gold, Google image, Michael Richard's-metal dots, Stampin Up dimensionals.

Thanks for viewing,
Beverly G ♥

you SO nailed it - it seems like i'm always saying this is my favorite - i can see why these are your favorites, though, because you've made a fabulous card with them

I haven't used that corner punch in forever ... love how the cord frames that fabulous image ... and what fun sentiment to go along with it ... I agree, you are rockin' the vintage ... thanks for joining our jingle belles fun.

Super cute vintage image and it looks to me like you are getting the vintage thing down pretty well!

I love this card, it had me chuckling as soon as I expanded the view to take it all in! Oh my gosh, she's adorable. Well, for someone who considers herself kind of new at vintage I would say you really scored a homerun with this card!

Lorraine said...

Yep, saucy is right. And so cool. Love the tickets too!

I have to disagree, I think you have mastered it quite nicely! Fabulous card!
