Just Magnolia - Vintage


 Morning and woohoo, Friday at last! Gee, it sounds like I wish mylife away butyou know what the first week back at work is like after your hols. It has actually been ok so I shouldn'tgrumble and I am going out tonight with my wonderful husband :o)
This week on Just Magnolia I actually groaned when I saw the theme .... only because it is so out of my comfort zone. We want to see VINTAGE themed creations. Now I just usually do nice bright colours and to be honest I wasn't really sure what I should do for my card.


In the end I decided to try and make my card look like an old photograph, so lots of sepia type tones instead of my usual brights! I actually really enjoyed making my card so it just shows it is always really good to try something new.



I have used Magnolia's 'Newly Weds Bridal Couple' from the Wedding Collection and teamed it up with some of my very first papers I bought ...  Papermania's Elegance Collection. I have distressed the edges of all my papers with the amazing Tim Holtz Paper Distresser - OMG how did I ever manage without this great little tool!! Bet you know where my flowers are from ... yep Wild Orchid Crafts ... thanks Paul and Siri, I love them! I have covered my heart with pearls which was punched using Martha Stewarts Lace Scallop Heart Punch - love this punch.


 I have also entered my card into the following challenges .....

Creative Craft Challenges - Here comes the Bride
Creative Inspirations - Use old stash ... papers

Wow stunning creation Marcea, you have sure hit the "vintage" to perfection. Fabulous colouration which looks just like all the old photographs I have, simply perfection.
Love your pearl details on the gorgeous heart and as always your floral detail is beautiful.
Congratulations being published, WTG girl!

I wish my cards were this good when I did something out of my comfort zone, and vintage would certainly be that, but this is fab. Thanks for joining us at creative craft challenges.
