Seed Catalogue:

Hello all!  I usually am not in the craft room on Saturdays, but it is miserable outside and I feeling crafty :)

I LOVE vintage cards, when I complete one I feel warm and fuzzy inside.  Unfortunately, I find vintage very challenging so I shy away from that style too often.

I used this gorgeous freebie, Seed Catalogue (found here):

Card Ingredients:  The House Across the Bay digi, DCWV Timeless Type, Tim Holtz Crowded Attic, and K&Co BW Flora & Fauna Ledger papers, Recollections cardstock, Tim Holtz Adage Ticket, Queen&Co Twinkle Goosebumps, Recollections pearls, Craft Smart Chocolate ink.  Tools:  sewing machine, C.C. Designs Phlox Flowers cutters, Martha Stewart stylus, Rectangle Nestie, Making Memories edge scraper.

I made this vintage card for the following challenges: Dutch Dare - bling, Polka Doodles - stitching, The Craft Place and LEJ Designs - vintage, Digi Haven - vintage with freebie digi, Papercraft Star - where did you got this summer?, Sketch Saturday - sketch:

We haven't gone on a vacation this year, but I love to go to my garden. 
This is my get-a-way:

Have a super wonderful weekend!
