Vintage-y ... So Hard for Me!

I was talking to a friend while I was making this card (Hi Deb!!) and I said to her, "Vintage-y is hard for me! Oh! I should use that as the blog post title!" Seriously ... y'all already know that I have a love/hate thing with "dude" cards ... really struggle with those, too! But the whole distress/sponge thing has me baffled!

I learned how to make this COOL flower on Patty Bennett's blog here. SOOOO super easy (WAAAYYY easier than you would think), and I really like how they turn out, despite the vintage-y direction they make one go! I have one slight adaptation on my flower ... I added the smallest of the flowers from the Boho Blossom punch to the center, directly behind the brad.

This past week has been NUTS!! Had a big ol' party for my daughter's birthday, and have been prepping to get ready for graduation and such ... not sure what-all I've accomplished, but I must be making progress, right??

I'm off to work on the grad announcements for my daughter and my nephew ... I am doing photo collage-type announcements, so they should be EASY!

Have a great week!

Wendy- I love your "Vintagy" card, so pretty! Sometimes we struggle, but the end result is so worth it! :)

I'd love to make a similar card for a friend who lives in another state. How would I mail it?
