Ahhhhhhhhhh Vintage

ATC above - Hero Arts Digital Kit "The Art of Style"
A few gems for the lady and just couldn't pass up those dragonflies.

                                       
Cuttlebug and embossing folders - YAY!
I do indeed love the vintage images. The Hero Arts Digital Kit "The Art of Style" contains so many wonderful digital images.  An embossing folder certainly adds depth to a card and grabs immediate attention.  I guess I can't do a card without using Tim Holt's Distress Inks.  This one is Shabby Shutters, still a much used color and one of the first colors I purchased.

I'm entering both ATC and card into Lily Pad Cards, which is a new but exciting place to visit.
Let's hear it for bling and Casual for the Third Challenge at CAS-ual Fridays 
I MISSED the last color challenge at The Play Date Cafebut I loved their color combo and used it in the ATC and card.  So thank you for those colors.
