I did a bit of searching for what vintage means. The best explanation I found: it's old and it looks good!

My card today focuses a bit on the patterned paper and fiber embellishments included in the kit. In the next couple of weeks, I will have cards to show you that are completely different from this (a bit more clean and simple)-so you really can create lots of things from one kit in lots of different styles.

Did you know that Artful Delight also offers a monthly sketch challenge too? It is where you create a project using either the card or scrapbook sketch for a chance to win a kit. My card uses the card layout, I just turned it on it's side.
