Vintage in Pink and Black - A Winner at Always Playing with Paper!

It is always encouraging to be acknowledged for your creativity. Thank you Always Playing With Paper for the sweet honor of being one of your picks this week!
For this new challenge,Playing with Paper, which called for a "vintage" look card, I used my new Elements of Style set and Artistic Etchings sets. I am also using this card for the Stampin Royalty challenge to create your own background DSP. I created a "shabby chic" vintage look by using Pink Pirouette and black on Whisper White cardstock. You can see I used lovely pink roses for my background. I love how versatile this stamp set is going to be! With a bit of retired ribbon and a button plus the gorgeous new antique brads, I finished off this card with a bit of "pop!" ( A very thin cut of black cardstock creates the "thread" in the center of my button, a tip from the wonderful Mary Fish and her Stampin Pretty blog...see sidebar for link) Hope you are having a great week!

Tracey, I LOVE the pink, black and white color scheme. I haven't seen that used with this set before, but it adds a freshness to the overall image that I think is really refreshing. Fabulous job.
Thank you for joining the Paper Players this week
