Vintage Anyone?

I'm back from a fabulous beach vacation in South Carolina!  I spent five glorious days on Pawley's Island basking in the sun with my daughter, son-in-law and grandchildren.  Oh what fun to watch the children skim boarding and learning how to surf  Note the word "watch"... I enjoyed sitting under the umbrella reading and the occasional dip in the ocean.  I did apply myself to a fairly intensive seashell hunt and I have lots of treasures to use on boxes and cards.

I have been in a vintage state of mind lately... I love adding all kinds of embellishments and creating a collage.  I've been eyeing these two vintage labels for some time and decided to pair these up with an ornate gate, all from Create with TLC.

card recipe:
design paper from MME, Bazzill and Georgia Pacific cardstock,
Copic markers, distress inks, Martha Stewart punch,
Prima hydrangea, Viva Decor pearl pen

This was a delight to create - I just love when I have all the "stuff" I need on hand.  I live in a rural area and  have to drive an hour to a craft store.  This gives me an excuse to "stock up" so I have what I think I'll need readily available.  I enjoy using digi's because you can have your image in a snap.  I do need to add that I still love my rubber!

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my blog today.  Thanks for stopping by, I love reading your comments and appreciate all your support!

What a beautiful card Marsha - love the way the black accentuates the images.
I too do not have a craft store handy, so I have to be very careful when I go to a store or craft fair that I don't over spend and blow the budget!!
