The first one is the Simply Sunday Challenge at Getting Cricky. The theme there is vintage appeal. Oh, when I read what the theme was, I got excited, because I am all about that theme. My problem this week has been having the time to get around to it. The second challenge that caught my eye is over at Cooking With Cricut. The theme there is "Pick Your Poison". And you ask, "What is that?". Well, it is using your favorite cartridge and favorite color. So here is my card.
I just love this vintage style phone from the SUMMER IN PARIS cartridge. It happens to be a cartridge that I just adore, because I love every cut on it! I also enjoy using the FRENCH MANOR cartridge which has so many beautiful cuts on it. But, my all time favorite is the SUMMER IN PARIS cartridge. Each of the items of the cartridge has a base cut and one additional layer. They all have a beautiful filigree look.
And now for my favorite color. It is french blue. And I especially love it when paired with a pale yellow. So those are the central colors of my card. I used paper from My Mind's Eye, The Laundry Line stack, for part of the base of the card. All other papers are from Colorbok, The Flea Market line. I uesd the Tim Holtz paper distresser, (my favorite little gaget) and a gold Colorbox stamp around the edges of the papers. The three printed borders to the left of the phone and above the ribbon are from K & Company. The two ribbons I used on the card are from JoAnn's and the gathered lace is from my stash.
The sweet embellishments I used are from the Colorbok Flea Market line and Prima. The sentiment in the top right corner, "a warm hello" is from the Scrappy Moms stamps.
I am so glad I found the time to complete this card, because I love it!!!!
