Just A Note for A Vintage Journey

Welcome to a new month and that means a new challenge at A Vintage Journey.  This month our lovely hostess, Alison, has decided on the theme of Words and Music which I have taken literally.  My card is made from some fabulous paper from DCWV I found in my paper stash and it is perfect for this challenge. The words were added using Karen Burniston's Word Sets 1 & 4.

For the inside I simply placed a panel of the coordinating paper and added a few words.

This vintage looking card was pretty simple since the paper did most of the work.  I simply cut the card base 8.5" X 5.5" and then scored down the center.   After choosing the elements that I wanted to use I tore them out and then edged all elements with Vintage Photo Distress Oxide Ink.

Have a great weekend and don't forget to stop by the Vintage Journey Blog to see what the rest of the team made for this great challenge.

  10. Sandy, I love how you've layered these gorgeous papers for a fabulous card with so much interest! And you even decorated the inside! You have really 'jazzed' up a flat card so it's ready to pop in the mail at a moment's notice! ('Note'the musical references!) I need to make some of these-- thank you for the inspiration! Hugs!
