Crafty Creations Challenges #159... Who Made THAT?

This week, Crafty Creations Challenges is asking participants to go VINTAGE. While I love many things vintage, in cardmaking that's not exactly my style. But that's what a challenge is all about, right? 




Our sponsor this week is Digi Doodle Shop, and that's where my terrific focal image comes from, along with the simple tag frame around it. The background panel has a collage of images from the Paper Girl set from The Girls' Paperie (part of a blog candy win from Kary!). The base layer is a digital paper from Echo Park's For the Record pack. I recoloured it a bit in Word... I wondered if that was, um, allowed, but then decided it was no different than adding some sponging. Speaking of... I sponged! I distressed! Me! And since I distress so rarely, how can I pass up adding this to the current Do You Stack Up? challenge (DYSU#60), which is all about distressing. 
If I can do vintage, anyone can, so come join the challenge this week! 




Supplies: white cardstock, cream certificate paper, Echo Park For the Record Noteworthy digital patterned paper, Digi Doodle Shop 1920 vintage dress & frame 1 digital images, The Girls' Paperie paper girl stamps, Brilliance coffee bean ink, feathers Pin It Now!
