Week #80 - 'Vintage White'

Hi to all my blogging friends! I hope you are having a wonderful week. 

I am so happy to have finished my Halloween cards! The one I am showing you today is being entered into The Shabby Tea Room’s card challenge Week #80 - 'Vintage White'.  For this card we were challenged to create a monochromatic card or project using WHITE OR CREAM, KRAFT, BROWN OR BLACK. And here is my card…

I just love the way this card turned out! I wanted to do something with ghosts and these little guys that I quilled worked out just perfectly. The base of the card is embossed with a Sizzix Texture Plate and embellished with off-white grosgrain and grey silk ribbon.  The frame is Spellbinders rectangle and embellished with tiny pearls. The background is outlined in silver pen then stamped with silver leaves and bronze squigglies.

The panel on the left is embossed with a Cuttlebug border and distressed with Jim Holtz Distress Ink.  The rose is rolled using an off-white grosgrain ribbon then distressed with Jim Holtz Distress Ink and finished with a pearl. The leaves were stamped using Rubber Stamp Tapestry’s leaves from the Pumpkin Border Set and then cut out to create a layered effect.

Last, the sentiment was made using my computer and Freebooter Script font. A black TomBow pen was used to edge the sentiment and then make the dots across the top and bottom.  Finish with pearls and done!
