Sweet Stop Sketch #62

Good morning, and happy Saturday!  I've been busy this morning playing along with the Sweet Stop Sketch Challenge.  What a great and inspirational sketch.  I made this thank you card with my new Sweet -n Sassy clear stamps.  I used the May Lily of the Valley set.  These flowers of the month are so wonderful to have for a variety of card making needs.  This set comes with the beautiful flowers, of course, but also includes some great sentiments for every day use, like Thanks, Hello, and With Sympathy, in addition to the May and Lily of the Valley sentiments.   A great set to have, I'm tellin' ya!!  :)  
 



Those of you who know me, know I love anything vintage.  I have to laugh, because I guess you have a true appreciation for vintage once you become vintage.  LOL!!  Anyway, I used K&Co. designer paper from the Charlotte collection for this card.  I did a lot of distressing on my fleur de lis pieces, ribbon, and around the edges of the panels with my Tim Holtz antique linen ink.  The image was colored with Copic markers, and I finished off the embellishments with some cream colored pearls.  

Thanks so much for stopping by.  It's always my pleasure to have you, and I hope you'll come back soon!  Have a beautiful day, and happy stamping!!

Love ya,

This card is absolutely GORGEOUS. I love vintage look also but I'm not very good at creating it. I guess I have to start paying more attention to all of your details. It pays to learn from the best!!! *Ü*
