Joy and Happiness

I'll be traveling next week, so this is one of my last posts for a bit.  This card is for the current challenge over at Bloggers Challenge, where the theme is "Christmas in July."  I decided to pull out this stamp from Stampington, which I used some years ago for my Christmas Cards. The image and sentiment were stamped with Peeled Paint Distress Ink onto Specialty Paper.  The mulberry card base was wrapped with olive lace and gold strips and a band of winter white vintage seam binding fashioned into a bow.  The snowflakes were punched out with a Martha Stewart Punch and touched with gold glitter glue.  To fill in the bottom of the card, I added a handful of vintage brass bottoms in various styles.  Thanks so much for stopping by!  Best wishes, Yvonne

I love this stamp in peeled paint---great idea. I will have to try that with some of my Stampsmith stamps. Super pretty bow. Have a good trip!

What a gorgeous vintage card Yvonne. I love the colour scheme that you chose and the gently sparkly snowflakes and buttons look gorgeous too. I hope you have a good week xx
