Going Vintage with Merry Monday

Good Merry Monday morning.

This week it's Nina's turn to choose our challenge.

Don't you love this sweet picture?

I don't  usually do vintage, but once in a while I try my hand at it.

I think it's growing on me and I'll be doing a little more of it.

This image is in my old Print Shop program.
This program has a lot of vintage art.
It's the reason I keep that old computer.

First I stamped the Christmas Background with Antique Linen Distress ink
and lightly sponged on some Brushed Corduroy.
I added a snippet of tan grosgrain ribbon and covered with some crochet trim.
I found the linen thread with the little labels lying forgotten in 
a basket of things to do.  I sponged some Antique Linen on them,
tied the thread in a bow and added it with a rolled glue dot.
All I had to do with the graphic was cut it out and mount it
on a snippet of Crumb Cake with sponged edges.

With all these snippets, I'm going to 
Pixies Crafty Workshop

Thanks for stopping by to visit today.

It's lovely Bonnie. (I think I have Print Shop, but now the program doesn't work since we had to upgrade the old XP machine when MS quit supporting it last ?year? that was a real bummer!). Love the way you've enhanced this pretty image with the cream & gold on the backgrounds too. TFS & Hugs

Beautiful card Bonnie, love the vintage look, the little tags and texture.

I started out with Print Shop Pro, I loved it, but now of course technology has overtaken it. I can't access the files though, and, there were such great images on it. That's where my love of digi started. Ah! memories LOL.
