Tiddly Vintage Mothers Day

It's time for Tiddly Inks Tuesday Challenge again. This weeks challenge #48 - Mothers Day Flair is to create a VINTAGE Mothers Day card. Some of the DT went Shabby Chic, too kewl.

Wow, was I ever nervous about this challenge. I am not a vintage card maker. I love seeing them, and there are many amazing vintage makers out there, but it certainly isn't my specialty. And of course I went Grandma's attic vintage.

For my card, I used "June" from Tiddly Inks First Birthday release. How could I not purchase her - the DT and Birthday Blog guest made her look irresistible.

I coloured her with Copics and added white pencil crayon to her hair. I paper pieced her dress & bow with MME - Wild Asparagus gingham and paper stained it after adding W5/W3 Copic shadows. I used a sponge to add the paper stain around the image. All gingham-ed up and and paper stained, doesn't June look like she just stepped off the set of Anne of Green Gables or Little House on the Prairie.

The top note style edge border - Annie's Edge and the Scallop Swirl frame are from SVG Cuts.

All of the DP is from MME - Wild Asparagus pack and the first layer is sewn to the cardstock. EVERY THING on this card except the ribbon and buckle are stained in a Coppery/Olive Green pigment pad. I added a Wilton 4" Bakers paper doily, some silk flowers, a SU Buckle, K&C border, green ribbon, pearls, a chipboard circle tag and stamped a Studio G sentiment on the tag then marker stitched the edges.

Hope she doesn't look too dusty for being dug out of Grandma's attic?

Also added to the May's Anything Goes Challenge at By The Cute and Girly Challenges - thanks to Lou for the link.
