The Pink Elephant Challenge #172

This week is a Theme Challenge:
"Vintage/Shabby Chic"

This week was a real challenge for me...this isn't a style I normally work with.  I took some help from My Minds Eye's Lost & Found Sunshine 6x6 pad which had papers that were perfect for this type of card.  I also used my Die-Namic Contempo Cage die along with a sentiment from Stampin' Up!'s Tiny Tag set.

Paper: Crumb Cake CS (SU!), Dark Brown Bazzill CS, Lost & Found Sunshine 6x6 Pad (My Minds Eye); Stamps: Tiny Tags (SU!); Ink: Memento Rich Cocoa, Walnut Distress Ink (Tim Holtz); Tools: Scallop Border Punch (Fiskars), Paper Distresser, Tiny Tag Punch (SU!), Contempo Cage Die (Die-Namics); Other: Hand Died Crinkle Ribbon (The Pink Petal Designs), Lace, Twine, Pearls, Foam Tape

Make sure to stop by The Pink Elephant Blog to see what Ella's Girls have been up to this week!!  Plus we are having a Scrapbook DT can find all the deets {HERE}.

Happy Stamping!!


  1. Gorgeous! I always struggle so much with the vintage/shabby chic style but it looks like you've got it down pat...even though you said it was a challenge! Great job!

  2. Gorgeous, I love that Bird Cage. I was tempted to buy the one from TH but, I always seem to put it back on the shelf, lol.

  3. Love your card and saw it on FB MME page. Just so simple and so beautiful!!
