PPA103 and Marina Elements

I'm back! I had a very relaxing weekend away and now it's time to get caught up. I designed this card for this weeks Pals Paper Arts Challenge, which is a sketch. This challenge is open to anyone! Would you like to play along? Click on this link to enter your creation, or to see projects made by other talented crafters using this sketch.

Is it possible to incorporate "clean and simple" and "vintage" in the same card? That was my attempt, and I'd love for me to tell me what you think! You can leave a comment at the end of this blog post.

The floral image was stamped with the Elements of Style stamp set and cut out ever so carefully with my trusty paper snips. I gave it two little 'spritzes', once with a Crumb Cake marker and the Color Spritzer tool, and again with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz, though I was unable to capture the shimmer in the photographs. It's a little prettier in person!

Great card! Think you hit just the right note for a clean & simple vintage card.

Oh, this is so pretty! Love the cutting around the flowers. I love the shimmer of the spritz too, but never get it to show up in pictures...
