Vintage time at Ruby's Rainbow

Hello blog friends!

Hopefully blogger is being my friend and this post has gone live as intended, for right now I am (very reluctantly) away at a work conference in Sydney.

It's time for another challenge at Ruby's Rainbow and this month our theme is


For my DT work I broke out my brand new Gorjuss stamp "Little Foxes". Isn't it absolutely darling? As soon as I saw this one I had to have it. How could I resist a stamp with foxes in it?

For this card I coloured the stamp with copics and then sponged the edges with antique linen distress ink. The papers are from Kaisercraft Homemade Collection. The beautiful antique lace is from the collection I got from my grandmother and the ribbon and pearl stick-ons are from my stash. Added to the ribbon is a sweet little antique style birdcage charm from Scrap Matrix. I've been saving this charm for ages and I'm happy to have found a perfect card to stick it on!

This card is for my husband's step sister's birthday.  Melissa joined the Fox family unofficially about 10 years ago and officially a year or so ago when her Mum married AJ's Dad. The papers I used are all about 'home' and 'family'.

I hope you will visit us at Ruby's Rainbow with your vintage creation. We have also got some new DT members joining us this challenge - pop over to give them a warm welcome and to check out their amazing talent.

Also entered into the following challenges:
Truly Scrumptious - All Creatures Great & Small
Oldie but a Goodie - Lace
Let's Ink It Up - Ribbon & Lace
Stamptacular Sunday - Pearls & Lace
Just Tracys Crafts - Something flowing (ribbon & lace)

and shared on Make It Monday.

Until next time,
