OTWC #45

Hi there friends!  Another week has passed and I am super excited to post today's card for Off the Wall Craftiness blog!  This weeks inspiration photo is vintage, shabby, or whatever you want to call it.  I adore it.
I went a bit shabby here and love the results.



This week's sponsor is Sakura.....they have wonderful products!



Actually, I just realized there is absolutely NO stamping on here!  I used another die from Cuttlebug here for the 'love you', added glue, and dumped Prisma Glitter all over it.  This is layered over a doily that has had tea dye ink smeared all over and placed on a kraft heart.  My seam binding was actually a very light pink and I darkened it with one of my Copics.  (a tip from Laurie :) )  Some heart stick pins and a rosette from Michael's finish this off.



My card was made using The Shabby Tea Room challenge for this week:  Sweet Hearts.  Other fun goodies to use were doilies, polka dots, flowers, lace, pink, green, neutrals, or ribbons.  Well, I think I hit most of those requirements! 

Have a great weekend ahead and let's see some VINTAGE at Off the Wall Craftiness!

This is so soft and sweet, Amy! The kraft behind the doily adds just enough contrast without taking away from the sentiment and that gorgeous ribbon. Beautifully done!
