Waltzingmouse Blog Hop :: Vintage Friend


Hey Everyone! I cleaned my studio on Saturday and it seems like it stifled my creativity. Yes, I like 'organized chaos!' As I looked around my clean work spaces, I did not see anything to grab and work in a small 6" square foot space! So, I was not sure if I would be able to be inspired enough to create something for Waltzingmouse Stamps' Blog Waltz. But, hours and a few mistakes later, here it is! The biggest mistake I made was that I had an additional sentiment at the bottom that stated, "You are my best friend." That obviously did not make sense with the "Friend" sentiment! So, I just removed it! Anyway, thanks so much for waltzing by today. Here are some card details.

Instructions
  1. Trim patterned paper to 4" x 5.25".
  2. Adhere doily.
  3. Stamp flourish pattern on vintage tag, then adhere over top of doily.
  4. Stamp flower and leaf, color, then cut out and adhere on vintage tag.
  5. Add ribbon treatment.
  6. Add pearls.
Supplies

Wow, lovely... I really struggled with the genre and here you go pulling off a classy stylish, not too busy, vintage/shabby card. I'm impressed. Glad to hear I'm not the only one who likes organized chaos.

for someone that was "stumped" you surely created a beyond beautiful for words card. I love your use of the tag and how you created a bg with the fun swirls. the colors are sweet & fresh. thanks for being a constant source of inspiration, ashley.

Gorgeous - that little flourish makes such a pretty background - must get mine inky. I'm loving all the doilies in blog land recently - an embellishment we can all get our hands on!

Love your stunning card, Ashley! Wish I could work in a clean space ~ just can't do it as creatively as you, so I guess I'll keep my space messy (:o) THAT'S my excuse and I'm sticking to it!
