Celebrate Today Vintage Card

Hello all my crafty friends, hope you all had a fabulous weekend.. Well, I have a really fun vintage looking card I created for my grandmother's 91st birthday.. She's such an amazing person and one of my hero's.. This card turned out so beautiful and I hope you will think so too..



Here's what I used to create my card:

*Nifty Fifties Cart (dress from with dress)
*StoryBook (shape background)
*Swiss Dots (cuttlebug folder)
*Paper(K&Company and the Paper Studio)
*"Simply Sweet Occasions" stamp set (My Pink Stamper)
*Ink
*Lg. & Sm. Pearls
* Crinkle Ribbon ( from My Craft Spot)

Challenges:
My Craft Spot -Monday Challenge # 11 = Tie it On!
*Getting Cricky with K Andrew* -Simply Sundays "Vintage Appeal"
YOU HAD ME AT CRAFT - come share you crafty projects


Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog.. Oh, don't forget the new "Getting Scrappy Challenge"going up this Sunday.. I would love to see you get scrappy with us :0)
