Happy Fall & A Winner!

Hey there!  I finally got a chance to make a card this week using Laura's sketch over at 2Sketches4You.  I flipped the sketch upside down and had a ball with this card layering lace and buttons and that sweet lil' vintage image!  I didn't have any Halloween stamps, so I opted for the fall sentiment.  It has been awhile since I played in The Shabby Tea Room, so I hope this qualifies!  Now, If you had asked me to make a vintage card 6 months ago, I probably would have laughed at you and broke into a cold sweat, but right now...I adore making them!  It is amazing what you can accomplish if you stick with it!  So, onto my card!

I used a sweet little girl on a pumkin image from this site, along with a tattered angels frame that I heat embossed with black powder, stamped my sentiment in True Black ink using Wreath For All Seasons by Papertrey Ink.

I took a scrap of lace trim and spritzed some Tattered Angels glimmer mist on it, threaded some Papertrey Vintage Buttons with twine.and adhered them with glue dots. 

Now, you didn't think I forgot about my giveaway did you?  Using, my winner is: #14
