Vintage is NOT my Style

I love serving on design teams. I love it for a variety of reasons.

1. I get to meet/work with other crafters!
2. I get to share my joy of creating with others.
3. I have an excuse to get inky every week.

Oh..... and sometimes it nudges me out of my crafting comfort zone!

That's the case this week with the Twisted Tuesday Challenge.

July 3 - 9

The challenge: Make a vintage style creation

The Twist: Use stripes somewhere on your creation
Now before you see my card, let me remind you, IT IS NOT NICE TO LAUGH AT ANOTHER CRAFTER'S ATTEMPT. (BTW, I don't normally do vintage.)
Okay, now that we have that settled, here's my card:

It is much to blah for my liking. UGH!

I do like the flower, though:

And here's a close up of the tag:

Of course, the inside has a little something, too:

Oh dear! Vintage is NOT my Style!

Don't know how you can say this isn't your style Jeanette - as it's wonderful! Love the stripes in the background, the tag, and the flower!
So pretty!

The colour combo is perfect, the flower is really vintage, the layout is great... I don't know why you keep saying is not your style. There's always a first for everything... now keep going on the vintage style because you are doing it really well!!!

Well, vintage likes you! I really like the layout, colors and details. The little tab on top of the tag is awesome!

The colors are great for vintage. My favorite shades for Christmas! The doily adds a great touch of vintage!

It's not my style either! But sometimes it's fun to play, right?
