Papercraft Planet Challenges

Today I took a little time to partake in a couple of challenges over on Papercraft Planet. I missed the deadline for the Color Challenge #47 but loved the color combo so played along anyways. The colors required were: Deep Brown, Vintage Red and Deep Olive Green. Well, right away that said VINTAGE to me!! And since I wanted to play along in the Sketch Challenge (SK121909) ... I decided to combine the two and here's what I came up with.

So what do you think?? I love how it turned out and really liked this sketch and will use it again soon!! I found this image online at Clearly Vintage Images and thought it was perfect for this layout. I used my Creative Memories Cutting System to cut my ovals since my Nestabilities weren't large enough. I've created an A-6 size card using the required colors of cardstock and musical designer paper from The Paper Studio. I sponged around the edges with Ranger Vintage Photo ink for a little more "vintage" feel as well as using Wrights acru lace, chunky gold glitter, burgundy Prima flowers and Michael's gold ball gems. Also by using a gold Pilot marker, I edged around my main image before mounting onto the burgundy cardstock.

Hope you like this creation and find a little inspiration from my work! Thanks for taking the time to stop by today. Merry Christmas to you!
