My Vintage Valentine Blog Hop

For the Flaunt it Friday Hop Click Here

Welcome to Kinderstampo's "My Vintage Valentine" Blog Hop.  I'm so excited to be part of this hop.  There are 24 super talented designers on this hop and you are sure to see some amazing inspiration and find some BLOG CANDY along the way!
If you arrived from Meighan's blog then you are in the right spot.  If you just stopped by for a visit, click here to start at the beginning!

This hop is all about vintage so I had to think outside my usual box.  I  headed out to Michael's to find some vintage inspiration.  I picked a beautiful piece of paper from Creative Imaginations and some Tim Holtz locks and keys.

 For my card base, I welded two scallop rectangle from Sugar and Spice at 5.5"w.  I cut my hearts from Sweethearts out of ivory cardstock and then used Tim Holtz distress inks to achieve this color.  I used a combination of fired brick, frayed burlap and antique linen.  I added a piece of lace out of my MIL's stash and the lock and key.  The sentiment is from the Scrappy Moms Stamps - Love Notes set.  I stamped it in brown and then heat embossed with clear poweder and then added the distress inks on top.
I think it turned out so pretty....a little different for mel but so much fun to make.

Now....I have a little BLOG CANDY!!!!
