Good morning.  Sometimes it is so hard to get going in the morning and I am having one of those mornings.  We have a new challenge going on at Paper Crafting Journey today.  This is our first challenge in the new year.  The theme is Vintage/Distressed/Shabby Chic.  I have used a digital stamp from one of our sponsors Digi Stamps 4 JoyThey are offering the winner $10 to their wonderful online store!  

Digi Stamps 4 Joy
We also have another awesome sponsor, Digital DelightsThey are offering the winner a $5 Gift Certificate to use in their online store! 

I have used Romany from Digi Stamps4 Joy,  Divas by Design Collection.  Isn't she just beautiful?  I framed her with Spellbinders Decorative Label 27 die cut.  I distressed the edges of the die cut and the patterned paper with Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  I used Georgia Pacific cardstock as my card base and my patterned paper is from Recollections at Michaels.  I printed my digi stamp on Solar White Super Smooth Classic Crest by Neenah Paper.  I added embellishments of lace from my stash, a rhinestone flourish from The Paper Studio and flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts to complete my card.

I colored her with these Copic Sketch Markers: B12, E000, E00, E01, E50, E51, E53, R20, RV55, RV63.  I also used a Copic Spica pen in Gold and Wink of Stella in Clear for a little sparkle.

I will be entering this card in these challenges:
