I made a quick "vintage" card for my friend, Cheryl's, Vintage challenge at Sketches4all.
I pulled out some chipboard and papers from Graphic 45 and some twine and got busy. It went together pretty quickly except for the sentiment. I just had the hardest time thinking what I wanted to do/say for the sentiment. I ended up using some Tim Holtz Idea-ology Verbiages (word stickers) to write out "I Love Your Smile". I think it works. How about you?
I also made this card for the new Crafter's Companion USA Challenge blogs September Stripes and/or Dots challenge that started today. I love this Poplar Tree stamp from Art Kure. I stamped out the image 3 times and colored them. Then I fussy cut one out and layered them on my card base. I used corrugated craft paper for my "stripes" and for some great texture. Apparently I'm on a TH Verbiages kick since I used them again for my sentiment on this card. lol What can I say? I like them. You should go check out that new challenge at the CC Challenge blog. You could win a $30 gift certificate to the Crafter's Companion USA online store!!
