A Pound of Thanks
I'm always up for a challenge, but I do believe the Moxie Fab World's Shabby and Vintage Card Style Challenge has topped them all. I don't know what happens. I just sit and stare when it comes to this style. Perhaps I think too much about it. Does that ever happen to you?
After close to twenty minutes of staring at a white card base, I remembered that I had won some wonderful blog candy from here, and I pulled out everything vintage-y that I had. Doing so, I found a pre-printed old world postcard with the pink hue that geared the color combo towards that of the latest Off the Wall Craftiness (oh gorgeousness!). I inked edges, stitched, distressed, added a doily, some hand-made pin embellishments and luscious satin ribbon. I think the card weighs close to a pound.
