Pssst The Secrets Out !

Ok.... The secret is out and I can finally share some exciting news. I have the pleasure of being chosen for the "Our Vintage Affair" design team. I am so excited to work with these fabulous ladies from all over the globe. Every month there will be new challenges anywhere from scrapbook layouts & cardmaking to altered art. If you have a love for the vintage style you will definitely enjoy this blog challenge.

The brand new challenge that begins today is "All About Buttons", there is also a sketch provided but not necessary to use.
The sponsor this month is and the winner will win the entire new "Sweetheart" paper collection. Hop over to their blog @ for some wonderful inspiration and to view this beautiful set of vintage style papers.
My interpretation of the challenge is this Friendship Card.

The image I chose was from Graphics Fairy . The mat for the image is Claudine Helmuths Sticky Back Canvas and stained with Lindy's Stamp Gang "Gator Gumbo Olive" stain. Mixed Medium Gel was applied to the image and then to the sticky back canvas. I hope you will stop by "Our Vintage Affair" to be inspired by all the beautiful art. xoxo Toni
