ANTHING GOES

Simon Says Stamp has two challenge blogs - one challenge is more mainstream and one is vintage.  This week on SIMON SAYS STAMP AND SHOW the challenge is "anything goes".  As you probably know, when either challenge blog has this theme, there are SCADS of entries. 

But, it is always worth a try and I wanted to use some new BoBunny decaf vintage double dot paper that my friend, Lin, picked up for me while she was in Florida.  Here is my card:



The sentiment was stamped with walnut stain distress ink on a reverse section of this paper and then diecut.  The doily die cut that is peeking out from behind the labels shape was given to me by another friend, Carol.  The hydrangea was stamped on the dotted side of the paper and a white Prismacolor pencil was used to add some white touches here and there.  A Martha Stewart punched border and some Hero Arts lace were adhered and then I sparkled it all up with some Platinum Stickles (my favorite).   The champagne colored gems are from BoBunny, too.  

Thanks, Lin and Carol, for enabling and inspiring me to make this card!

The walnut tones in this design are so soft and add a vintage effect along with the lace. Lovely Joy!
