Vintage Welcome!

Good morning eP friends! It's my turn (Julie) to post some fresh inspiration for you and let me just say how much FUN I had with this card!  It's sooooo not my usual style but it's really fun to step outside your comfy zone sometimes right?!

I had a bit of fun using a beautiful stencil from Crafter's Workshop, this one is Mini Flower Piercing.  I used the stencil on a piece of kraft cardstock and used 2 different Distress inks.  I started with Old Paper in the center and then gradually changed to Picked Raspberry (from the Summer Seasonal set). 

Once I had that I played around with some fun Envelope Tags from Graphic 45. Since they are so vintage and, well . . .eclectic (LOL!) I went with a vintage-y theme.  During a recent clean-out I came across a bag of vintage photographs bought from an antique store several years ago.  There were several pictures of this adorable baby (isn't it sad that someone lost their family's photos?!) so I die cut the face, added a wash of pink with the Picked Raspberry ink and layered it on to a flattened bottle cap and rosette made with paper from Authentique's Lively 6x6 pad.

What a fun baby card for an antique-loving friend!  Thanks for checking out eP today, I've linked up the products used below. Have a great day!

Wow, Julie this is awesome! I adore the stenciled background in the pink...such a perfect combo with the paper and buttons. Beautiful!

What a great card, Julie! Love the vintage look, and showing off the photo on the rosette is a fabulous idea!
