1800 Vintage Lady

Is it Wednesday already? Wow, how time flies.  This week over at DDSC our challenge is to do anything but a square or rectangular card.  So get those dies, or personal cutting systems out and work away.


Do you like this beautiful vintage style, if not I'm sure you'll find what you do like?  Check by at the Digi Doodle Shop here and see what’s on sale this month.  You’re sure to find something you love.  There is such a wide variety of images.


I didn’t have to do much to this lady, as she is beautiful as she is. I colored the image with my Promarkers. The card is cut from the Wild Card cartridge by Cricut (it is the doily circle that I’ve stretched into an oval in Design Studio.) The paper, gems and ribbon are from my stash. 


I’m entering this in the following challenges:

Incy Wincy Designs – something old (ribbon), something new (image)
Cupcake Craft Challenges – sewing
Paper Creations Ink – stitching
The Ribbon Reel – yellow, green, aqua
Stamp Something – summer
Catch the Bug – anything
Creative Craft Challenges – summer
Everybody Art Challenge – summer
AI Factory Challenges – anything
Digi’s With Attitude – anything

Don’t forget to stop by and see all of the ladies of the DT and see what beautiful work they’ve come up with this week, and why not leave them some love.  We love to hear your comments as much as you enjoy hearing ours (I hope.) LOL.

Hugs,

dj
