WCMD a la splitcoast

The second Splitcoast challenge was by Crafty Secrets and it just so happens I have a few of those in my collection. While I am not as vintage creative or shabby chic as my friend Sherrie Siemens (love that girl!) , I like to think some effort will make me better some day! After all, I do love the look, just haven't mastered it yet.

So here was my best try....

I love the faux stitch stamp!

And part of the challenge was to create pop...I figured between the contrast of colours and the popped up buttons my card fit the challenge!

Awwwww Alli, thanks for the little plug....love you too babe! Great job on the vintage/shabby look while still looking very "Alli". I love to dabble in other styles too, it keeps it fresh and fun. Have a great day!

i LOVE how you sewed the ribbon into the design! It is such a beautiful detail. Vintage is a tricky style I think, you nailed it.

Hey Alli, I couldn't believe it ... I found out today that I know your sister!! I was at one of Teresa's stamping events today and we were talking about different stamp companies. I almost fell over when she said you were her sister!! What a small world!!
