Anya Challenge #8







Vintage Cards....mmm!! Anya ink's challenge for this week. Vintage seems to be able to mean so many things and I was unsure of what to use. Vintage cards say lace, roses and distressing to me and yet when I started to put this card card together lace just wouldn't fit and roses seemed all wrong as this card is to be an anniversary card for my husband for the big ten years!!

I tried to use earthy colours and printed the Sweetheart Anya & Ian out in brown. I distressed the papers, using the gorgeous So Jolly paper from Magnolia Down Under and Kaisercraft paper. The bronze heart was also from Magnolia Down Under which I tied on with twine and made the perfect finishing touch. The ric rac and ribbon were from the stash. I love the finished product and am sure my husband will too!!

This card designed using the Sketch from Creative Inspiration for this week.
