Vintage Text

Welcome to this weeks new challenge from
which this weeks theme is set by fellow team mate Linda and is
Just Text No Image.
Our sponsor this week is Digi Doodle Shop with a $10 voucher as the prize.

My card this week has a lot of text on it. I have made a 8x8 easel card, the front is covered in a text paper which has been distressed around the edge using Tim Holtz Vintage Photo. There are then different layers on top of that which include a cream pearlescent card which has been embossed using a Sizzix text embossing folder, a doily distressed with vintage photo, a piece of vintage looking lace and a round Happy Birthday stamp in the center.

The floral decoration is made up of 2 swirl leaves cut from dark brown card using a Cheery Lynn Die. To which I have added some lovely red and cream roses. Then a big bow of Champange Organza ribbon and a red center.

The inside is made up of two corners cut in pearlescent card using a Marianne Die, 2 gold glitter swirls bits and a rub-on sentiment from Kaiser Craft. The inside is also covered in a text background paper and lightly distressed. I hope you like it.
