Yes, Virginia....

Good morning!  It's time for another challenge from the ladies at Ruby's Rainbow; for this fortnight, Lesley has chosen "Vintage" for our challenge theme.  Sounds good, right?  I went with's right around the corner, you know!

I've had this stamp and DP in my stash for quite awhile and had always planned on pairing them.  I distressed my papers and added some die cut holly spritzed with Glimmer Mist and tied with twine, some pearls, and glass glitter (love the chunky look of pretty!).

Sentiment: Penny Black
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black
Paper: PTI Vintage Cream, SU! Cameo Coral, October Afternoon DP
Embellies: SU! Glass Glitter, PTI Twine, Spare Parts Pearls, Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in "Pearl"
Extras: Sizzix Holly Die, The Paper Studio Sticky Doos

I hope you will hop on over to Ruby's Rainbow to check out the vintage creations; why not play along?

I am entering my card in the following challenges:

Deep Ocean Challenge Blog: Christmas in July
Jellypark Challenges: Christmas in July
Ooh La La Challenge: A Step Back in Time
The Hobby House: Christmas
The Paper Girls: Glitter, Glitter, Glitter

Thanks for stopping by!
