Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog- Create A Shabby Chic or Vintage Project

Hello, Crafty Peeples!

It has been a while since I worked with one of Rick St. Dennis' images, so it was fun to work with Briana!  I have always liked this image and although my design did not turn out exactly as I envisioned, I am still pleased with the result!  Hope you like it, too.

I guess I must be going through a swiss/polka dot phase.  I am using them a lot lately.  My gray dotted Washi tape came in handy and played beautifully off the brown swiss dotted paper.

 I was scrounging around in my miscellaneous buttons jar looking for a button large enough to cover the magnet I used for my closer when I came across this cool brown wooden button.  I already knew I wanted to use the saffron jute ribbon, and the four elements came together like a charm.

This cool ticket is from Vectoria Designs.  My printer was nearly out of ink, but this still printed great and actually I was excited about the faded look.
