Cupcake Craft Challenges * 16 - Vintage

I hope you had a lovely weekend, and that you managed to have some me-time to relax and recharge your batteries! As for me , this weekend really passed quickly, and I managed to make this DT project in these last few hours ;) Anyway here it goes!!

This week it was Steph's turn to set the challenge. It will be Vintage week! Hey.. this WAS a challenge for me, actually I never done vintage before! I work a lot with earth palette colours, but not real vintage style. So to tell you the truth I had to make some search in internet to get some ideas of vintage styles and different layouts, pictures and downloads to start. But then in an hour and a half it was ready. Record time for me I think! :))

I hope you like it. I used downloads for papers, Father Christmas and picture. Then I tore edges, inked with various ink pads and Ranger Distress Antique linen. Embellished with some pearl dew drops and Christmas fabric flower. Victorian style lace and Stampin' Up Circle of Friendship stamps to finish!

Have a lovely week friends, and I hope that now that Advent has started, we help by spreading joy, love and some Christmas Cheer to prepare our hearts to celebrate Jesus' Birth in a few weeks' time! Don't forget to go to Cupcake Craft Challenges to see what my other DT friends have created, and while you're there, visit their blogs, and leave them some love. I hope that you'll also find the time to join us as well, especially if you're a Vintage lover. If you're not, do like me, take the plunge.. it will be worthwhile!

I am getting close to 5000 hits, and I may also make a candy nearby.. preparing for Christmas. So stay tuned!! :) ♥
