A Spoon Full of Sugar - Vintage

Tuesday - so that is A Spoon Full of Sugar time. And this weeks challenge is to make something with a vintage look. Lovin' that! I hope this is Vintage enough... Is 1970's style vintage? Man just by asking that I feel older! LOL

For this look I chose one of Stampavie's new Sarah Kay images. Just love these "new" look SK's.  This one is "Josephine cuddling her pet cat Kiki" - really gorgeous, love Sarah Kay's hats and flowing hair, and now those wonderful fun fashions too! 
Really wish I could look that cute in clothes like that! LOL  For my card I stacked up Bazzil Dotted Swiss card stock with a peach colored card stock. To match the piece of pattern papers from K&Company.  I wanted to keep the layout of the card simple - Cutting out my image with a oval, then matting with a Nestie label die. Wonderful border punch from EKSuccess across the middle. And for the girlie "vintage" feel I used adhesive pearls.
I have colored with my copics including making a "mat" around the edge with the same colors as I used for her sweater. Now I totally copied fellow Stampavie Dt member Tracey in popping her hat :0) I saw a card she had made with the new Sarah Kay's and loved how she popped the hat... I just had to do the same. Thanks for the inspiration Tracey!
A sentiment just didn't fit well on the front. So I decided to leave it without on the front, and decorate the inside with scrap papers and put my sentiment inside -

I think this sentiment is from CTMH... and think it is a wonderful sentiment for a card just to make someone smile. 


Hope you enjoyed my Sarah Kay Vintage card - make sure to visit A Spoon Full of Sugar and see all the wonderful cards and projects from the DT, then join us for  a chance at this weeks prize! 

HUGS and have a wonderful Tuesday!
