You're Late-SFYTT


I am thrilled...two challenges, one card! I made this for this week's "Sketch for you to Try" and for last week's Cinema Saturday Creative Challenge. I really need to get better about making my Cinema card *before* the new movie is announced. Ugh! I really wanted to participate in it because the movie was " The Curious Case of Benjamin Button". We were asked to incorporate *time* into our design as well as making it *vintage*. Do you think I succeeded? LOL!

Before I get away from myself, I wanted to let you know that Jen, the fabulous host of the SFYTT is offering *BLOG CANDY* for participants of this week's sketch. You will want to head over there to find out the deets! I still feel so lucky that she picked me to be one of her SFYTT girls! It has been so much fun!

For my card, I stamped the Rabbit image from "The Mad Hatter's Tea Party" stamp set from TJ Designs! If any of you attended Stampfest you may have come across their booth. It would have been fun to be there. Anyway, back to the card. I colored him with Copic and Prismacolor markers and distressed all of the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink (shocker). The Mad Hatter circle image was stamped and colored the same way and then mounted onto an accordian flower. I also used the vintage alphabet image at the top of the rabbit from the "Vintage Collage" stamp set from TJ Designs. You can find it if you follow the link from above. The glitter and clock were all purchased from starlitstudio . I am in love with all of the great products Cindy carries. It definitely caters to the vintage crafter. I love all of the charms, glitters, etc. that she carries.

The paper is from a scrumptious slab of K& Company paper I picked up at Hobby Lobby the other day. I am in serious paper heaven. You will probably be seeing it on quite a few designs for the next little bit. I added some buttons from my stash, threaded some and leaving some naked. I hope I didn't veer too far off of Jen's great sketch. You can check out the other fab creations from the rest of the gals:

Hi Kelly, you mentioned that you used K&Co. paper on this creation. Can you tell me what line it is. I didn't see anything on their site listed as "vintage cream." Thanks so much.
