The current challenge at All Things Unity (ATU #37) is to create something vintage. Not exactly my go-to style. However, I do have the Unity Vintage Fruit Bundle, so anything made with those stamps has to count, right?
Here are the things I'm happy about on this card...
1) The address is Canadian -- Regina, to be specific! As it turns out, the stamp designer, Lesley Langdon, is Canadian. I didn't expect that happy Canuck connection with a Unity stamp.
2) I think the gingham paper works perfectly with the image and adds to the vintage feeling.
3) This gingham paper also happens to be a fine match for Riding Hood red cardstock from Stampin' Up, on which I stamped and embossed the strawberry, then popped it up on the main image.
4) All Things Unity is calling the Challenge "Going Old School"... and this image is addressed to someone at a school! Gotta love serendipity like that. :D
I'm also linking this post to this week's Unity Friends with Flair. It's been awhile! It's nice to get back into entering a challenge or two, but this card also has a specific purpose... it's a get well note for a friend who broke her leg recently. :(
