Vintage Collage

Happy Friday and thanks for taking the time to visit the Charmed Life Blog. Another weekend is here and the last one in February. We don't have any plans.
Maybe out to dinner at a new restaurant that opened here a few weeks ago. Hubby mentioned going to a high school basketball game.
I will be doing some crafting I am sure. I guess we live pretty laid back lives in the winter time (lol)!!

My card today is one that I made for my weekly Friday post on the Great Impressions Blog. I did an emboss resist technique. My stamped image is from the Great Impressions Stamps- "romantic collage-H147".
I stamped in Versamark and embossed with white embossing powder.

My background is sponged with Stampin-Up's blushing bride and primrose petals inks. I restamped the post mark and the woman image again in primrose petals and fussy cut for a little background interest.

I die cut a key using the PaperTrey Ink "lock & key die". In the corner, I used a crocheted heart from my stash and die cut a heart in primrose petals cardstock and stamped the music part of this image on that.

I made a bow with some wrinkled seam binding from my stash. Pulled out my distressing tool and curled up the corners of the cardstock to finish off the card.

Well that's it for me today. So until next time.........God bless.
