Best friend.

Hello my friends, how is day going? Mine is slow and quiet, it doesn't happen everyday, but I am enjoying it, while I am writing this post, my daughter is watching "The Wizard of Oz",  she is next to me and so far she hasn't said a word in 15 minutes, LOL, that means she likes the movie :)

Anyway, today I have a very Vintage card. I played 3 challenges together. The sketch comes from TCP, the colors from Stampin' Sisters in Christ: shades of Whites, Brown and Blue and the Friday Blast from the Past "Cracked Glass Technique" over at Stamp TV.

Few things to highlight, I made the paper flowers from some scraps I had left form my previous card, I sponged the borders after they were made and added some Diamond Glaze for some shiny look. For the Cracked Glass I used UTT, I have to say it works 100% much better than Clear embossing powder, it's a little more expensive than EP, but if you use a coupon you can save a lot.



Card recipe:
Card Stock: Ivory, White, Chocolate Brown, Ocean Mist (all Gina K. Designs)
Paper: Ancestry.com collection (K&Company)
Stamps: Friends (Gina K. Designs)
Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa (Tsukineko), Tea Dye Distress (Ranger), Broken China Distress (Ranger).
Embellishments: Pearls (Michaels), Twine.
Accessories: Circle Nestabilities, Square Nestabilities, UTT, Embossing gun, Sewing machine, white thread, Medium Glue Dots, daubers, Foam Tape.

Hope you like it.
Have a great day!!
