MFT Guest Designer Challenge

The folks over at the My Favorite Things blog is having their monthly guest designer challenge. Following the sketch, here is my entry for this challenge.

Unfortunately, I was in need of a Sympathy card so I wanted this card to have a bit of a nostalgic, vintage-y feel.
I used the Inspired by the Front Porch, Tulip image and used some printed papers I had on hand. I added a bit of vintage lace and some gems. I didn't want it to be too flashy but elegant. Thanks for looking! Blessings~ Birgit

PTI ~ Make It Monday Challenge

Today's challenge over at Nichole Heady's blog focused on creating a collage background. Dawn McVey gave an awesome video tutorial on how to build your collage background. All I can say is.... I'M ADDICTED!!!

I've always liked the look of a collage background and have tried it myself once, maybe twice. But, today's tutorial really helped me think outside the box! I couldn't wait to get to my craft room, still in my pj's and slippers and start creating. Here's my take on the collage background.

As you can see, I didn't deviate much from Dawn's design.
Here is the inside of the card:

Since the card base was made using Winter Wisteria, I opted to add a white writing space and dress it up a little.
All supplies used are from PaperTrey Ink.
*Ink Colors ~ Fine Linen, Winter Wisteria, Lemon Tart, Limeade Ice, Spring Moss, Dark Chocolate & black (embossed)
*Stamp sets used ~ Background Basics Text Style & Tin Type, Think Big Favorites #13, Postmarks, Rosie Posie & Birthday Basics
