Merry-Go-Round - This is my DT card for Craft Your Days Away. The challenge this week is Vintage. Vintage is becoming one of my favorite styles. The aged laces and cream are so warm.
My image is from the Stamping Bouquet. I fall in love with this image. It looks great in vintage, but would look equally cute in bold bright colors. And who doesn't love a carousel? I colored the carousel with Copic's and distressed it with Ranger's Antique linen.
My DP is K and Company Classic. The flowers are Recollections, my brown gemstone swirl is Want2Scrap. All of my DP was distressed with Ranger's Tye Dye. The image was cut with a Spell Binders. My big expense at the Convention was the Spell Binders Fleur De Lis Motifs and Accents. I adore this set. I added some stickles over the stars and swirls around the horse.

You can get Spell Binders and other really neat crafting products at our Sponsor Simon Says Stamp. They carry a wide range of products scrap booking and card making. Check them out and send them some Craft Your Days Away love.

I hope you peek over at Craft Your Days Away to see what the rest of my teamies have done with the vintage challenge. If you want to join us in the fun and a chance to win, you have 2 weeks; as we are a fortnightly challenge.
