Classic Sketches

I recently participated in an All Occasion swap with SSUS (Sensational Stampin' Up! Swappers) so I couldn't share the card I made for the swap. Since I received the cards from the other swappers back today, I can now share it. The cards I received were are all great! Thanks Ladies!

I used the set Classic Sketches for the focal image of my card, stamping it in Basic Gray on Sage Shadow card stock. I tore the bottom of the Sage and sponged it with Going Gray. The sentiment is from Sense of Time from the current Occasions Mini Catalog. (I'm obviously really drawn to the vintage style stamps!) The words were stamped in Basic Gray on Creamy Caramel, sponged and layered on Basic Gray again.

The card base is Creamy Caramel overlaid with Basic Gray with distressed edges, then a layer of Ruby Red stamped with the flourish from the Baroque Motifs set in Ruby Red, and the edges were also distressed on it.

Stamps: Classic Sketches, Sense of Time, Baroque Motifs
Inks: Basic Gray, Ruby Red, Going Gray
Paper: Creamy Caramel, Basic Gray, Ruby Red, Sage Shadow
Accessories: Basic Gray Taffeta Ribbon, Distressing Tool from the Cutter Kit, Vintage Brads, 1 3/4 Circle Punch, Coluzzle, Stampin' Sponges.
