A cup of Roses.....

Image may contain: text

Hello dear blogging friends: The RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE, has a new one for you to play with and we are giving you this lovely picture to inspire you.
I looked up the word VINTAGE and there are several meanings, some refer to the process of picking up the grapes and making wine others say that the word VINTAGE refers to something classic or that was made some time ago, this definition is what I used for my card.

This image is from Our Daily Bread and it's 3 years old, love this sweet image of the tea cup full of flowers and that lacy napkin underneath. The little cameo on the right is from a stash of plain rubber stamps I bought from a blogger who was selling some of her older sets.
The background paper is actually a paper napkin, I saw THIS VIDEO and I thought it was really awesome so, I bought some pretty paper napkins with various designs to give this a try.  I was really surprised at how easy it is and how beautiful the results were.


This is how the INSIDE of my card looks like.

The lacy border is from a retired SU set called "Delicate Details" that came out on February of 2017, the little cup image was a gift from my 20y/o granddaughter about 2 years ago, she found it at the craft store here in town.

I hope you hop over the RETRO RUBBER CHALLENGE BLOG to check out my teammates cards and get some more inspiration from their amazing designs.

Oh, Maria, this is a beautiful vintage piece with some lovely stamps! Amazing that your background is a paper napkin, and it sure is a perfect fit for your card. I'm always tempted when I see pretty napkins. The designs on some of them are gorgeous! Hey, I saw you were the #1 winner in Darnell's Twofer Challenge. Congratulations! You had some super cute cards that I absolutely loved!
