Oh my!  I woke up this morning to another snow storm!  I have just one queation.  WHAT HAPPENED TO FALL?  Seems like we went right from summer to winter with this being our second snowstorm in the space of a week or so.

On to happier thoughts.  Let me show you my card for today.

Sympathy flat

Vintage is generally not my style but I have wanted to give it a try since Convention.  That's because my friend, fellow Pal, and event roomamate Ann Schach gave a demostration on vintage cards to the Pals.  So Ann, here's to you!

Some of the pointers that she gave us that I remember –

* Color pallette.  Vintage looking colors – Wisteria Wonder, Soft Sky and Sahara Sand and I did use a layer of Brushed Gold

* Distress, distress, distress  So, I distressed.  Notice that the layers have all been "roughed" up.  The upper left corner has been curled with the layers separated.  A dab of color ages those corners.

* age it!  I spritzed some splatter on the main layer with Soft Suede ink.

Sympathy rt card

* And of course, every vintage card needs pearls!

* Curl that banner and distress it!  I can almost hear Ann talking to me. Hi Ann!

* Crumple, crumple, crumple to age the layers.

* Dimension – yes I fussy cut the bird & popped him up with dimensionals.  But the Elegant Butterfly Punch came to my resue for the butterfly.

Sympathy left envie

Although I am generally not a vintage style girl, I will definitely give it a try from time to time.

Thanks for stopping by my blog today!
