PTT #69 Vintage/Shabby Chic

It's Tuesday, and we have another amazing challenge for you at Party Time Tuesdays!

Vintage or Shabby Chic!

We have some fabulous sponsors this week,
check them out:

A certain fabulous grandpa I know has a birthday coming up,
so I created this card for a certain fabulous boy to give to him.

That adorable digi is from The Stamping Boutique.
I colored him with pencils and then cut him out and used pop dots to lift him off the background.

The background paper was created using the teeniest scraps
of my beloved October Afternoon Fly a Kite collection.
I may actually cry when it's all gone!
I inked all of the edges with some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to give it a vintage look.

Come join us at Party Time Tuesdays
with your vintage/shabby creations!
