Vintage Friend

I hope you are having a great start to this week.  Me, it's going pretty well.  And on this Tuesday, I hope you get a chance to stop by the Nacho Average Challenge to play with us!  This week, we have a sketch for you to play with. Here is this week's sketch:

Here is my vintage card:

I have an infinity for shabby chic, and feminine.  And, I just LOVE this color combo I used: Soft Suede, and Calypso Coral.  When SU! came out with this stamp set: Established Elegance, I had to have it!  I just loved the dress form, the button logo stamp, and the flourish.  So, the card base is soft suede card stock.  I just love the soft creamy color.  I added the strip of calypso coral.  But I wanted to jazz it up.  So, I ran it thru the vintage wallpaper EF, and used the new emboss lit to cut the scallop scallops.  I sanded the raised areas and sponged some crumb cake classic ink to this piece, too.  For my tag, I stamped the dress form in soft suede classic ink.  Then I stamped the crown, and button label stamp in calypso coral classic ink.  I added some random flourishes stamped in crumb cake classic ink.  I inked the edges with crumb cake classic ink.  I matted the vanilla tag with some crumb cake card stock.  I crinkled some crumb cake seam binding and made a multi loop bow and attached it the tag with a designer brad in calypso coral.  I added the sentiment tag to the bottom right.  I got this idea from the 'NAC 13' on the original sketch.  I also did some collage stamping for the sentiment tag.  I also matted the tag with crumb cake card stock.  I wanted to keep everything uniform.
Now, don't forget to stop by the rest of the design team's blogs to see what they have created!  I hope you find some inspiration! and please do play along with us @ Nacho Average Challenge.
