This week I am using the Antique Dressforms and the Vintage Sewing stamp sets from Creative Expressions to create a vintage card.
I have also created a WORKSHEET with step by steps should you wish to download and print. Simply click HERE.

The background has been created using Antique Linen Distress Ink adding Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink around the edges. I have then added Large Polka Dots using the That Special Touch Large Polka Mask and Brushed Corduroy Distress Ink.

I have also added background stamping using the button and ruler background stamps and Brushed Corduroy and Potting Soil Archival Ink. I have also added a banner with the sentiment 'Tres Chic', colouring with Distress Inks to coordinate with my backdrop.

Three Bitty Blossoms have been added, colouring the edges with Enchanted Gold Gilding Wax.
Don't forget it is "Fun Time Friday" once again on the Creative Expressions Facebook page, simply leave a comment and you could be in with a chance of winning a fabulous prize.

Thanks so much for stopping by. Tracy x x
