Play Date Cafe Challenge #5, and Soartful Challenges - Lovely





Welcome to the new designer at Play Date Cafe, Julie Campbell.  I went to her site A Vintage Chic and I saw all of her gorgeous work there too.  She really inspired me this week, and she has some fantastic blogs that she follows too.  That's where I found the image for this card.  The site is called Old Photo Album and she has some wonderful, free, vintage photographs!  I also had a chance to use the Bazzill jewel templates flowers and flourishes, and the  self adhesive jewels in wild pansy,  that I won through When Creativity Knocks Great Crafters Tool Hunt.   Bazzill really has it together on this system.  It makes it so easy to look like a professional when adding the beautiful jewels to your projects.  Check out my beautiful swirl, I am really proud of it!  Thank you Bazzill!   Stop by Play Date Cafe and see what Julie and all her other team members made, and you will see my inspiration.  I love the vintage look of the pearls and lace.   I just found another challenge site SoArtful Challenges, and they just happen to be using this exact image in their challenge this week, called Lovely.  I used the Cuttlebug Swiss dots folder and I made my flower from the Spellbinders round scallop die distressed with Tattered Angels glimmer mist.  Thanks for looking.  ~Diane

  6. This is a stunning card. I love the composition of your layout. And, now, I can link the photo to Old Photo Album. I thought that is where it came from. Please share your gorgeous work with us again at Soartful.
