Vintage Ivory


Hi everyone.  Happy Monday!  My card today is for the Unity Kit of the Month sketch challenge and I am using my newest KOM- Love in an Instant!  So so many cute designs in this kit but I had this idea in my head as soon as I received my kit and I am really thrilled with the way this card turned out.


I love tone on tone colors and using all of this ivory and cream really gave this card a vintage look.  It also helps that I inked all of the edges with Vintage Photo distressing ink by Ranger:)  I pulled out lots of cream colored papers from my stash and embossed one background piece and stamped the KOM images on another.  The image and the sentiment were stamped in Memento Ink Rich Cocoa  and then I softly colored the dress with colored pencils.


The crocheted trim is from My Mind's Eye and the lace border peeking out is a Martha Stewart border punch.  I added a pearl pick from Caramelos Shop, cabbage ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique and a heart button from Charlenes Button Box all at Etsy.com 


The inside is pretty clean and simple. I used the same stamps for the backgound and another strip of the lace border.  Just needs a sweet message from me!

Thanks for checking out my blog!
