Almost Vintage

Hiya!  What a great Saturday morning.  I had the best time last night.  I had a dinner party at a local bistro for my friend Kameron.  She is beginning her fight with breast cancer.  I wanted her to have a really good time before the effects of chemo kick in.  Kameron is one of the funniest people I know and her spirit is so contagious that I just know cancer doesn't have a chance!

I have this pretty purple card today featuring Really Reasonable Ribbon's Juke String Lavender and Wild Orchid open roses in white with baby pink.  I also used notebook bitty bags to hold my tag.  My sentiment and the little design element on the bag is from Crafter's Companion Sentimentals-Friends and Family.  I also used Memento ink-Sweet Plum from Crafter's Companion.

This card is a little out of my comfort level as I don't really make very many almost-vintage cards.  I just cannot wrap my mind around how to achieve that "old" look.  I hope you like what I did!  I am on the fence!  My question: what is your favorite style?  

I really love how the Juke bow turned out.  I used the Zutter Bow It All to create the bow.  

Thank so much for joining me today!

What is your favorite style of card making and why?
