Vintage Love

Hello a good start into the weekend. Today i have lots of pictures. The card was made for "Stamp with Fun" Challenge blog. The theme is to make a "vintage" card. I used for my card a Tilda which can be found in the Christmas 2008 Collection and combined her with a stamp from the "Love" 2009 Collection. The tag behind the focal point image can be pulled out and be used for a personal note to the recipient.
All layers of the card are heavily distressed. Here is a close up shot from the inside of the card. I used Shimmerz new product Spritz in "Baby Breath" It does look soooo pretty! If you like you can go over to the blog and put your entry in to win some of the new Shimmerz Spritz colors!

okay.. you probably think iam going nuts now to decorate also the back of my cards ? noooope..and i don't think i will start it :-) I have made this tag with all the sewing to add to the inside of the card but it just did not look "RIGHT" so i used an other tag and this one i just did not want to throw in the trash.
little splatters is from a retiered stamps set by Stampin up called itty bitty backgrounds
Papers: K&Company "Madeline" 8.5 x 8.5 found at Michaels
I also would like to tell you from a brand new Challenge blog called: The Next Level! iam so excited about this blog and can not wait to see what is going to be going on there!!!

This card is breathtaking, vintage all the way:-) I'm a sap for the Tilda's and I love all the distressing, there is so many cool things to look at on this card
Beautiful is all I can say!
The mists are too much fun to play with, I have a few from last year from the glimmer mist line and I love the effect on the things ive tried! Lots of metallic effect on them:-)

Claudia, this has to got to be the most lovliest vintage card I have ever seen. The destressing on every piece took a lot of time and is so detailed and beautiful. Your layers are well put together and Tilda looks like she walked out from the past. Inside and out, your card is just fabulous. Hugs, Cami
