Holiday Vintage Style

Happy Friday to you all! Yeah, the weekend is just around the corner!

I am playing along with the Moxie Fab Stretch Your Holiday Style Challenges again. Today's card is for the Vintage & Shabby Chic Challenge. I am stepping way out of my element on this one... I went for more of a vintage style on this card. These stamp from SEI were the best images I had for something vintage. To add to the vintage feel I distressing the edges of the green stamped cardstock and the sentiment. The edges of the card base and the green cardstock were inked with Vintage Cream ink. To add the perfect vintage touch I pulled out my PTI vintage buttons... I stitch a row of my most vintage looking cream and brown buttons, then finished off the sentiment with one last button.

So what do you think? Does it have a vintage feel to it at all? I've stretch my style on this one, so I'd love to here what you think!

The weekend is almost here, Yeah!!! Do you have any big plans? I have my 10 year HS reunion on Saturday, hard to believe it already been 10 yrs! Well, hope you have a good one! Thanks for stopping by today!
