First up is Always Playing with Paper's Merry Monday Challenge # 83 (Stripes, Red, Chocolate with Stars or Hearts)
The elements of this challenge spoke to the vintage side of me! Just look at the beautiful inspiration photo. Head over to Lesley's blog and check out the awesome cards from their design team!
I love this challenge so much, I didn't even feel I needed a sentiment on my card. I simply adore any and all backgrounds as a platform to build my elements upon and I used a vintagey embossing folder from Tim Holtz. Using Core'dinations paper, and sanding it down, brought out the distressed look I was going for.
