The Card Concept #67 (Vintage)

Hi friends!  I hope you're having a great day!   I'm getting things done today.  I'm staying home (no running around for me) and getting caught up on laundry and hoping to clear out some things from my craft room.  Mr. J promises a new desk and flooring for me.  I promise you don't want to see the carpeting I have now!   Counter tops and flooring are on order so I'm moving things a little each day - things I don't reach for every day.

Today I'm playing along with The Card Concept.  This is one of my favorite challenges.  They profide an inspiration photo and you can spin it in any direction you like.  The focus here is on style.  Their amazing design team ranges from Clean and Simple to Mixed Media so you're sure to find a style you can identify with.  Me?  I love them all!  I'm in awe of those with a similar style to me, and jealous of the ones who are different than me.   Is it wrong for me to wish I could do it all? 

I think this challenge should have been called Chocolate Heart because that's what I zeroed in on!  I don't usually like to work with neutrals and browns - I'm a bright colorful person LOL.. so I'm always amazed at what comes out when I switch things up.

I'm going to define my style on this one as Classy and Elegant because it definitely has a WOW factor with all that sparkly gold!   All the stamps and dies on this one are from Reverse Confetti.  I triple cut the Double Edge Scallop Border and layered them.  The bit of glitter on the edge of the Topped Off Tag is washi.

I layered the top of the tag too starting with a gold foil Top O'The Tag topped with a Gold Glitter Heart Topper.  I used the extra hearts as confetti and inlaid a few chocolate ones for contrast.
A pretty bow is always welcome - mine is tied with ivory button twine with a engraved button center. 
Thanks for stopping by!  I hope you feel inspired to play along - or maybe made you a little curious to see the other designs inspired by this vintage image.
