Hello Snarky Peeps! We have a new challenge this fortnight at the SISTERHOOD OF SNARKY STAMPERS! We are toning it down this go around. I guess. Maybe. Well, you'll see! It's V for Vintage!

Edna has the coolest toys!!! I'd be happy to be her designated driver if I got to drive around in this sleek little number! LOL!

Anyhooo, here is the card I created:

 And the inside:

Nothing screams vintage to me more than G45 papers, and when I saw this card by Robin Shakoor, I knew I had to CASE it! (Thank you Robin!) Inking and distressing the card panels lends to the vintage vibe of my card. And bonus, I used more chipboard pieces! Woot Woot! I found this gorgeous reddish/orange crinkle ribbon in my stash which paired beautifully with the colors in the paper collection. A stamped sentiment completes the inside. No snark this time. I just couldn't go there with this card! LOL! 

So, ready to play along? Sure you are! Don't forget to link up your creation at the Sisterhood of Snarky Stampers! Oh, and please leave some bloggy love for my Sistahs, and our newest guest designer, Linda! Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have a fabulous day!

  5. Sometimes it is hard to add the snark, especially with such a cute girl image. Well done.

  6. Oooh, this is beautiful, Chris! G45 really is so perfect for the vintage look. Love that sweet image you used. And LOVE the ribbon tie!

  7. You pulled out the G45 too! I love thm, but I do think they put too much of that orangey color in their collections. Rant over. Your card is sweet and perfect!
