We're feeling Vintage with Mashup #14!

I'm late today getting my Mashup Project posted... I had some delays with a Mouse who has taken over my craft area and a nasty  leak in the ceiling. But I'm caught up and getting back on track, they said it'll be a a few weeks to get the huge hole they left in the ceiling patched up but oh well and the Mouse guy was here today and left me some new traps for the mouse.. Although I have come to the conclusion that he is the smartest mouse on the planet!

This week it's Kathy's turn and WOW she has given a few us a run for our money lol, Vintage doesn't see to be everyone's thing. I struggled a bit but just had to really think... Then I ended up doing a CASE card.

The great thing about the Friday Mashup Challenge is that you can do either or... I just seem to always want to do the Mashup...It's a challenge after all right? I gave up on my first try... Here's a peek at some of the elements I had that just weren't working!

When I think Vintage I think make it look old... but really it's older looking elements, flowers, distressing etc.

I love the look of the card in the Hostess section of the last catty and I wanted to recreate that. I only had 2 of the items they used so this is really more of a layout CASE.

I used Baja Breeze, More Mustard, Cherry Cobbler and Very Vanilla. The Scalloped Border, Heart and Boho Blossoms Punches. I sponged everything with the same colors. It's super cute! The background is done using the Vintage Wallpaper Embossing Folder.

Head over to the Friday Mashup Blog and see what the rest of the Design Team created this week... There are some gorgeous projects! Then create your own Vintage project using Flowers and link up... We'd love to see what you create for the challenge.
