A Vintage Thank You to JustRite

Greetings blog friends  (I started to type Flog Briends--yike!).  I was so fortunate as to win an honorable mention in JustRite's JRC#056 challenge, for this Christmas shaped card.  So it's time to thank them for their generosity, and I'm doing it with this card:


For this I used JustRite sets Fancy Frames (sentiment) and Applique (blocks).  The Applique blocks were stamped on 1" Inchie Arts squares and colored in with Copic markers.  The sentiment was stamped in black craft ink and embossed with black detail embossing powder.  The vintage cotton rickrack and vintage button were antique mall finds.  The DP is from DCWV's Nana's Kitchen collection, and I sponged Moonlight permanent white ink around the edges of the card.  By the way, the doily the card is resting on is a vintage torchon lace one purchased in Honiton, England on a visit years ago (couldn't afford any genuine Honiton lace!).

  

 This card was also made for two challenges:  The CR84FN37 color challenge of light blue, aqua, and neutral, and the Moxie Fab World sketch challenge (Horizontal Sketch Challenge).  Thanks for the challenges, ladies!


That's all for now--thanks for looking and have a nice day!

  3. What's this! 2 cards in 2 days, surely unheard of from you Cyndie! Absolutely beautiful take on the colours and design (you really should think about submitting your wonderful cards for publication - if you haven't already).

    I don't have any Justrite stamps but have been tempted. Should I head down this path, that I know will lead to yet another addiction?
