Holly pm'd me this afternoon, asking if I would host today's challenge for her. She had to make an unexpected trip to take her auntie to the hospital and did not get to make a sample for the theme she had chosen, "Very Vintage." (say a prayer for 'em!) She knew that I have been making cards with OCL's Vintage Roses, so she asked me for help. I, in turn, asked for support from my friend, Wendy!

Hey, Deb!! I've been loving those vintage cards of yours lately. So glad to see you hosting this challenge and look forward to playing along since I love vintage. I'll get right on that before I go to bed!!!
Hi Lynn! To me, vintage means crocheted lace, distressed/inked edges, old-fashioned images, linen/canvas/muslin textures...
Thanks Deb. I needed some more clarification. I used none of that in my first card because I don't reallly know how to do vintage but I am working on my second card to try to really "get" it better. I don't have any lace but I am going to use some of your other suggestions and try again.

I decided that usually I try too hard with vintage because it's not me. So today I tried not to try too hard, and am happier with what I achieved.
Thanks for stepping in, Deb, and I've been thinking of Holly and her aunt. Vintage Rose
Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia
Good morning. Here's my card for this challenge with a few others combined in the description. It's 75 here and I'm going to be putting on my gardening gloves as soon as I get this posted. Thank you for looking, God bless, and YAY! Spring is finally here!
Since I found my stash of vintage papers (can't remember where I got them, or who made them, but I've had them 10 years or better), I could go on making vintage cards forever. This one is for my daughter who won't remember when, but she is an avid cyclist. Remember when?
