And now for something completely different!


So I went with vintage and a touch shabby on this card but used semi-modern stamps to do so! Who says the two can't mix? *smile* 
I was so happy to get this set in the mail from WPlus9 Designs. Such cute stamps! The images and sentiment are from Just a Note. They stamped like a dream. 
I purchased two other sets also, but we'll see some of those later, I promise.

This gorgeous rose silk ribbon and vintage ivory crochet trim are from the Practicing Creativity Designs store and are made by May Arts. Luscious I tell ya!

A few black rhinestones, some inking, and rounded corners finished it up!


I also used the canvas/linen impression plate from PTI on the card base, but it doesn't show up in the photograph.

Don't forget to leave a comment on the post below this one for a chance to win some PTI blog candy! You have until 8 PM EST on Sunday night!

Thanks for stopping by today, have a good Friday!
