My attempt at Vintage...sadly we go together like oil and water

This is my final post of the evening...this was for the crafts and Me challenge which is Vintage. Whilst i love other peoples vintage cards the thought of making my own really feels me with apprehension. It just seems to be the one style i just cannot get my head around. Whilst my card below is probably my best attempt so far i must confess i am still not happy with it. i look at it and feel like it isn't really sure what style it is. But hey i thought i would give it ago so here is my card.

For this card i used...

So Stylish digi from The Paper Shelter
Chipboard which i coloured with Copics from my stash
Papers, sentiment and flowers from Kmart
Copics E11, E17, E71, R81, E13, R11, E00
Gelly roll in Clear Sparkle

I would like to enter this in the following challenge.

Any feedback on how to improve my "Vintage" would be greatly appreciated!



  1. This is just gorgeous...fabulous image and

  2. so gorgeous jo.i love your soft vintage colours and really pretty image and details.
    thanks for joining in our vintage theme at the Crafts and Me Challenge :D

    xx coops xx

  3. Jo, your softly colored So Stylish image looks fabulous on this neutral-toned card. Lovin' your use of soft fabric flowers, chipboard and vintage elements. Perhaps you'd prefer these elements to be clustered rather than scattered to the corners. So glad to see your entry at the Crafts and Me Stamps digi team's "vintage" challenge. Hugz, ~ Rose

    1. Hi Rose,

      Thank you for the suggestion and kind comment, i will most certainly give that a try, i think i over think Vintage.
