Vintage Suede Note

Boy oh Boy...did I have a hard time with this card! I knew I wanted to use Soft Suede, Rich Razzleberry and an old book page, but that's all I had ;) I probably had this designed 10 different ways, but this is what I ended up with. I finally just said, "It is what it is". Sometimes I stress a little too much over my cards...does anyone else have that problem???

I used the Very Vintage Wheel for the background of this card and I L-O-V-E It! It is a MUST for your collection. I'm actually thinking of designing a card that is just that wheel....nothing else...has that ever been done...I think I'll try it ;) The details really are that intricate and pretty...you hate to cover them up.

The flowers and the Friends focal image are all from the Vintage Vogue set. It matches up perfectly with the Very Vintage Wheel. I cut all of these out and popped them up on dimensionals. So worth the effort ;)

Hopefully, these last three designs inspire you to do something shabby, vintage or just different. It's fun to go out of our comfort zones every once in a while. TFL!

What a beautiful card! Love the colours, love the layout and all the vintage-ish deets!

This I have decided was my favorite. Although, the one with the four flowers was easier. I think.
