Papercraft Star Anniversary Day 4

Hello everyone!  Are you ready for one more challenge?!  I hope you still have some pep in your step!  My challenge today is to get your party on vintage/shabby style!  For your chance to win a fabulous digital sheet from our sponsor The House Across The Bay just create a party project using a vintage/shabby style. To get your creativity going you can use the photo inspiration from "The Pokadot Closet" if you choose.  So let's keep this party going and I look forward to seeing your projects!

For this card I used digital sheet 182 from THATB.  I started with a Choice White cardstock as my base I then adhered layers of some beautiful shabby pink lace from my ever growing collection.  I then resized the digital image in Photoshop to fit my card perfectly and printed it off on some more of the white cardstock.  Next I stamped the frame using an image from Verve and die cut it using the coordinating die.  For the sentiment I used another stamps set from Verve called "Party Time", which was also cut out with an coordinating die and popped up.  A little distress ink around the images to give it a more shabby look and some seam binding paired with a vintage button finishes my card.

Now for the details:  To enter my challenge, just link up your projects to the Papercraft Star Saturday's post for your chance to win a digital sheet from our sponsor THATB.  You have until July 9 to enter this challenge,  so that's pleanty of time:-).  To share my love of the shabby/vintage style I also have a prize I will be glad to send  to the winner.  Thank you so much for stopping by and I hope you find time to play along.
