KCRR #36 - A Vintage Anniversary Card

I've had a pretty productive week so far! Organizing my craft room has been top on my to-do list lately and I'm close to checking it off as being complete! I hope to share some of the organization tips I used within the next week, so stay tuned! 

Let's introduce a new KCRR challenge!

Strawberry Slush
Vintage Style
Teeny Tiny Wishes Stamp Set

We decided to keep choosing three items (instead of two). I think it's fun and a tad more challenging!

There are two other challenges I wanted to play along with. The first is a card sketch from a new challenge blog that I came across just recently. I absolutely love their card sketches and couldn't wait to play along! Cardabilities, it's called (check them out!). Here's the sketch this week:

And The Card Concept has a theme this week:

I'm going with a 'shabby chic and vintage' style for my card design and using my Stampin Up colour coach, I chose Rich Razzleberry and Crumb Cake to go with Strawberry Slush. I think these colours are fabulous together! 

I layered cardstock to make up the card front and distressed and sponged the edges. Though hard to see, I stamped lines on the Crumb Cake cardstock. Strawberry Slush ruffled ribbon wraps around it. The fabric flowers are one of my favourite embellishments to use and I think they work perfectly in this card design. I sponged each flower with Rich Razzleberry ink and added pearls to embellish them. Here's a closer look:

Thanks for stopping by! Feel free to play along with our KCRR challenge! (just post a link to your blog post in the comments below)
