Moxie Fab World - TT- Set the Table

Happy Sunday! It is a VERY sunny day here! We are having a long heat wave and I would love
some lovely Autumn crisp mornings! We had record water usage in Victoria last month - lots of re-hydrating going on!

On to my card....

I was excited to see the photo for the latest Tuesday Trigger at MFW, because it reminded me of those gorgeous vintage prints I've been seeing in the shops.

I did a Google search for a vintage image and sure enough I found one at the Graphic Fairy.
I then changed the colour in Iphoto to 'antique' and then printed it on vellum.
Then I layered it on some script paper from Prima Almanac.
Then I layered it on a contrasting pattern and made a zig zag stiched border
(I'm not a sewer, so this was tricky!).
Then I inked up a card with walnut stain to fit the vintage look and added the sentiment.

What do you think? Did I achieve a vintage look?


  1. I like it! I want to enter this one but have no utensil ANYTHING. might have to try another interpretation, but I do love your faded gold setting here...
