Make a Wish...

Hi Lovelies!

**I am so excited and honored that this card was chosen as Top 3 at The Kraft Journal on 6/5/12 and Top 3 honors at My Craft Spot on 6/6/12**

We have a photo inspiration for you over on the Inspired By Stamping Inspirational Challenge blog.

Here is my card!


I started with a kraft card base adding a touch of vintage white paint to the edges.  I pieced my damask patterned paper to my embossed kraft panel which had been painted and sanded which you will be able to see below. A length of crochet trim was added where the pieces met.
Two hearts were die-cut, one from vintage book print and the other was stamped with an image from  Delicate Doilies adding a pearl to the center. A sentiment from Big Wishes was stamped and hand-cut into a banner and placed to the lower right of the card front.
A vintage tag from THATB was added to the right side of the card embellishing with crochet trim, pearls and flowers. 
A banner was cut using vintage book print and embellished with buttons and twine! Adding a banner tab at the upper right with more pearls.  For a finishing touch a fussy seam binding bow and flower was added. 

Further inspiration was found at The Kraft Journal - Emboss and Embellish. My Craft Spot - Buttons and Bows

I thank you so much for coming by and I hope you have enjoyed my share for today! I think it might be my favorite card I have made to date! I hope you will join us this week. I love to see your beautiful creations. 

Till next time!
~Tammy~
