A vintage card gets new life


When I saw that Amanda P. and her shop, Crafty Paper Girl, was the sponsor at Get Sketchy this week, I had to play along. I mean... her felties are adorable!!!

I'm here to show my support for her awesome shop and encourage you all to get on board with this super sketch challenge. Which... is also awesome! (Great sketch, Bree!)


It's hard to tell in this lighting, but the Parisian Anthology papers in the background of the card were misted with Maya Mist Silver Plated Metallic. I know those of us using these papers are all calling out how we colored them, so I wanted to be thorough with my blogging. :)

The angel is from an old Christmas card set. I highly recommend saving old cards. They make great vintage pieces for cards and pages.

The PP paper, tickets, and the mist can all be found in the Inspired to Scrap November kit-Glittered Wonderland. Which is awesome, too!

Thanks for reading my post! I have a bunch of card posts piling up as I'm busy-busy with the cards right now. I hope you can get some ideas from them!! :)
