Vintage theme

Good evening my scrappy friends, I hope everyone is having a wonderful weekend! Mine has been pretty lazy, I spent today making up some cards and I thought I would share them with all of you...

First up is a card I made for the challenge over at Scrap Africa~ this time its a Vintage theme! It took me awhile to come up with an idea....Vintage is really hard for me...don't get me wrong I love vintage style layouts and projects but I just can't seem to make my own LOL at least ones that I like when I'm finished....but I have to say I am really lovin my card, I used a bunch of scraps and dug through my ribbons...I really thought I had an older price of lace but I think it has vanished along with those odd socks that seem to disappear from the dryer! anyway I found a stark white one and I tea dyed it...Love it! I will definitely be doing that again! anyway here is my lovely card....

and now here are two cards that were inspired by one I saw on pinterest....there weren't any directions but it looked pretty self explanatory but I wrote the basics :)
 I made these for Fall/Thanksgiving and thought I would share it's a quick and simple card but I think it packs a colorful punch! I used my silhouette portrait to cut the leaf shapes ...then took a piece of white cardstock and used some dylusions ink sprays to make my fall colors...after it dried I cut 2 pieces 2in x 5 1/2 for the inside of the card and 2 pieces at 1/2in x 5 1/2 for the outside. and voila a beautiful fall card!

 thank you so much for coming to take a peek at my latest projects!
