I love the look of vintage cards.  Vintage allows you to go in so many different directions.  One of many things that are on my wish list are more vintage stamps, I don't have any at this time.

I received the birdcage and bird die cut from a friend in a swap.  The cage was red and just didn't give me the look I wanted so I  covered it with crackle paint so that the red shows through.  I took a grungeboard swirl and added rhinestones to it and placed in on top of a page out of an old book.  The background of the card is distressed inks with a spritz of water giving it a weathered look.

The left side just didn't look right so I added tule and metal cornor brads.

"ORANGE" Design Team Card

I have been a really bad blogger through this summer.  I haven't entered any contests or anything.  I made a board book for my daughter for her 30th birthday and I've kept up with all the birthdays in the family and of course, I've done my design team work.  I just haven't been very good about sitting down and getting it onto my blog.

This card is for the design team at Scrap Tiffany.  This week we were to work with the color orange.  It's not one of Tiffany's favorite colors but it is mine.  The image is from Stampin Up and colored with copic markers.  I distressed the orange cardstock by wetting it and then rubbing my finger over it until it was torn and wrinkled.  I think it give the cardstock a ruffled look.

Enjoy the day and I will try to do better about posting my cards.  I'm now off to make next weeks DT card.
