Vintage

I made it over to the studio today to work on a few cards. The MFP challenge was vintage so out came my favorite lace and cbug embossing folders.  The typewriter stamp is from a Prima set, and it became the focal point.  I pulled out my Heartfelt Creations flower dies, some dp, distressed inks, and an SU Sizzlit.  I kept adding until I had to "DID" it--I "deemed it done!"  Who uses the word deem anymore?  So I had to think about dinner and this is what I ended up with.  I like it and enjoyed putting it all together. A challenge is a good thing because it makes you s-t-r-e-t-c-h your imagination to go one more step.  I hope I win the stamp set with the vintage sewing machine.  It is really a nifty image!
