Stampin' Royalty, Curtain Call Colour Challenge and the Sweet Stop Sketch

Last night, while I was up way too late, I visited my pal Jaydee's blog and saw her amazing card you can find by clicking HERE.  I saw that she was using a sketch from the Sweet Stop and I really was drawn to that sketch!  So I started to make a card, using that sketch and a couple of other challenges.  I used the pretty colours from Stacey's Curtain Call Colour Challenge and I played along with Stampin' Royalty which was to make my own Designer Paper.  This card also qualified for the Paper Players challenge to make a Vintage Card...so I decided to add it! 

This is what I came up with, I had a hard time photographing it...it is a little dark...


I used the Vintage Vogue set and stamped some flowers and flourishes on the white piece of cardstock...I actually inked up each stamp, stamped them on a scrap piece of paper and then stamped them onto my cardstock...to give a softer look.  I sponged the edges in Crumb Cake...I stamped and cut out the flowers on the side of the card and popped them up on dimensionals. 

Thanks for stopping by!
Smiles,
Lesley :)
