Paper Smooches SPARKS Jan. Trend Watch

Hello, friends:}
Today we start another weekly challenge over at Paper Smooches SPARKS blog!! The first week of the month is always a TRENDS WATCH challenge. 







This week we are inspired by the following photo:
I was thrown a bit on this challenge--VINTAGE??? So not my style! I needed a birthday card for my FIL....so I started to think about the word "vintage". That's where this unconventional bday card design came from-- my FIL is considered "vintage"....so I looked in my paper stash for "vintage" papers {Echo Park This & That Charming collection- available HERE at the RC}. I think these match perfectly for this challenge, as well as the vintage camera image {PS Knick Knacks}. So I think this card fits;) I inked up several other Paper Smooches stamps sets including Falling For You, Birthday Buddies, and Alphadot. LOVE that definition of vintage...wait a minute! 20+ years??? I guess I'm vintage too! LOL! 
That's it for me today--but be sure to stop by the other Paper Smooches SPARKS DT members' blogs and leave them some love


And don't forget to stop by the Paper Smooches SPARKS blog for more details!!!! This challenge ends January 13th. I cannot wait to see what you make--I just LOOOOOVE my Paper Smooches stamps (I got four new sets to play with last week--I cannnnnnot wait to ink them up)!!! 

THANKS so much for stopping by! Be blessed:}

What a FUN FUN card, love that CUTE camera with the gem flash! I remember when my brother turned 25 (years ago!) I told him he was officially an antique!!

Hilarious card, Sav! And the rhinestone in the camera's flash is so smart.

Nina Yang said...

Haha, Sav, I have been wondering how to define your style for a while, and after the recent PC call, maybe you are a "Freestyle Collage" girl? This is something out of my reach but I loooooooove your cards!!
