A little bit of vintage

I've been inspired by vintage today and had a great time with some old Graphic 45 I had in my stash.  I love Graphic 45 but tend to hoard it rather than use it.  So for me making 4 cards with this paper is some what decadent.

This first card was inspired by the challenge at:
Moxie fab world - create a card based on the layout below

I loved making this card as the layout made a great sketch to follow.


This next card and in fact all four cards were inspired by the challenge at:
Moxie Fab World - let's do shabby and vintage 
Inspirational card sketches - sketch 74 - I turned the sketch on it's side


The inspiration for this one came from:
Clean & simple - sketch 98 - OK I know it's not really clean & simple style but I loved the sketch and wanted to use it as soon as I saw the paper with the cherries on it


Card Patterns - sketch 72 - I loved making my own patchwork background and will definitely be using my scraps to do this again


Next on my list of things to do is a set of wedding invitations for my friend.  I've got the card and the ribbon but I need to get the priting sorted out.  So let's hope that the printer wants to play nice.
