Crafty Friends Challenge 1

Beate with the help of some friends has started a new challenge blog called Crafty Friends Challenges.  The first challenge is to create a vintage project.  I joined in on the fun and made this card which I hope fits the theme.  The card base is Stampin Up's creamy caramel card stock.  I cut it to 5 1/2 x 11 to get a 5 1/2 in square card before inking up the edges with tea dye distress ink.  I covered the front with patterned paper by My Mind's Eye.  The main focal image is Stampin Up's stipple rose and I used Versafine's vintage sepia ink to stamp it on the solid color paper also by My Mind's Eye.  I cut the oval using the coluzzle tool and I distressed the edges a bit before inking them up with some tea dye distress ink.  The sentiment is a Brenda Walton die cut sticker from K&Company and I adhered it to a piece of creamy caramel card stock to add a bit of stability.  It has a fun shape so I cut around it exposing a bit of the card stock, inked up the edges with the tea dye distress ink and adhered it to the card front with dimensionals.  To finish the look, I added some ribbon that I had saved from some packaging a while ago because it was too nice to throw away.
