I always love hearing from you

Every once in awhile, I enjoy making a "shabby/vintage style" card. Even though I have a Fine Art background and design experience, making cards is often a challenge for me.  This particular style seems the most natural and easy.  I like this style because it not only has a sentiment but evokes a nostalgic feeling as well.

My card today is for two challenges.  The Patterned Paper challenge at Lily Pad Cards, and the current monthly challenge at Hero Arts.

I always love hearing from my creative friends too!

Paper:  Cosmo Cricket
Ink:  Versafine, Onyx Black and Tim Holtz Distress, Antique Linen
Stamps:  Hero Arts
Dies/Punches:  PTI and Fiskars


  1. You did a great job by using the same stripes on the circle!

  2. Wonderful card, Nancy! Love your design - thanks so much for joining us again at the Pond!!

  3. Nancy, this card is a delight! I'm loving the diagonal stripes in those wonderful colors; the sentiment and old-fashioned phone are a perfect match! So glad you joined us at Lily Pad Cards.

  4. I absolutely LOVE everything about this card! Saw it on the HA Flickr group.

  5. What a fun card, the stripes are so classic!

  6. Fabulous paper, Nancy! So perfect with that image! Love it! Thanks for playing with us again at Lily Pad Cards!
