Fresh Vintage with Fresh Colors- {PP#82}

Hello and Happy Sunday to you! Can you believe that it is almost Valentine's day? This year  is sure flying by, isn't it? It's time for another fun challenge over at the Paper Players
Whoo-hoo!! The lovely Ann Schach is our hostess this week and she has a fantastic color challenge to try out. I really like all of these colors independently, but when you add them together in a combo...they really ROCK! Thanks for the inspiration this week, Ann! :) 
I used the sketch from Mojo Monday for my card design. I generally do not like like design elements that are "tilted", but have to admit that this sketch is pretty awesome! I think it has something to do with all of those fantastic layers. *grin* It's going into the book of favorites, for sure! :) 
I featured the Fresh Vintage stamp set and the Everyday Enchantment DSP from the Stampin' Up! Sale-A-Bration catalog on this card. If you would like more info about the Sale-A-Bration promo, jplease contact me! (...or check out my sidebar to view the catalog.) I distressed all of the layers with Soft Suede sponged ink, for  a slightly "dirty" look. I'm still trying to get into the groove of "shabby-chic-ness". A complete supply list is available at the end of this post, if you are interested.  
Thanks for stopping by today! Please pop by and visit the rest of the PP Design Team (along with the Mojo Monday challenge) to view some fantastic creative inspiration. I hope you have a chance to join us at the Paper Players, this week. The challenge ends Friday, February 17th at Noon (PST).
Have a HAPPY day,

  3. I think you are doing a wonderful job capturing the shabby chic look...no further instructions needed! This is my favorite set from SAB, probably EVER, and it is just lovely framed with your beautiful scalloped layer and accented with the pearls, embossing and shading! Gorgeous!

  12. I agree with you on the skewed panels--they make me run, lol! But you've made them work splendidly here! I love how you've incorporated the soft suede in the sponging and the ribbon and that trio of pearls in the corner is wonderful! ((hugs))
