Practicing Creativity

Vintage greeting card made with old dictionary page and Inspired by Stamping stamps

I'm playing along with two challenges todaySeize the Birthday's sketch challenge and Papercraft Star's polka dots and lace challenge.

I used a page taken from a 1920's dictionary as my center image, on top of polka dot and dusty pink cardstock.

The circular stamp is from  Inspired by Stamping's Fancy Circles set with the Birthday Girl sentiment from Butterfly Wings. The crochet lace trim is also from Inspired by Stamping. Doesn't the ribbon look pretty woven through it? I like that look.

I finished up the inside with more pink cardstock, polka dot paper and vintage blank paper.  Here I used IBS's Birthday Greetings and Big Wishes sets (I use the heck out of these two sets, they are sooooo versatile).

Here's Sieze the Birthday's sketch:
