Vintage Happy Birthday

Hello Everybody!

I wanted to be sure to play at the last challenge of the month at Inkspirational Challenges.  And I did-barely!  If you haven't been there go check 'em out!  If you play all month you can have a chance to get the prize from the sponsor.  There are some great prizes!  Wednesday starts the new set of challenges. :)

So here's my card:


This week was a sketch challenge.  I used Crate paper and inked it up with vintage photo distress ink.  I inked up just about everything!  LOL.  The circle and sentiment.  And for the lace I used a tea dye distress stain.  The green middle ribbon is a Tim Holtz ribbon that I used sage stain on.  The ric rac already dark brown so no staining there. :)

I glued on some buttons from my stash.  It needed a little extra vintage.

Here is the sketch:


For the month of September Inspired by Stamping is the sponsor.

Thanks for stopping by!  Until next time my friends...Keep on craftin'! :)
