Happy Day

I did this card up for my sister as a congratulations card. I wanted to work with the vintage challenge at Always Playing With Paper the design at Mojo Monday and the colours at Color Throwdown. Usually I can only make a project to fit one maybe two challenges and yet today when I was blog hoping and enjoying looking at every ones hard work and creativity I found three that I could work with for one card. ]

I'm really loving doing these challenges... I find that since I've started them and starting blogging I am finding myself much more motivated to find time to craft, even if it's only an hour, and to not spend soooo much time on each item. I still take way to long, lol, but I'm getting a lot better and making decent cards in under 1 hour! :)


  1. Great vintage card all the details. Thank you for playing along with us again!
    Lesley :)

  2. Beautiful, Laurie! I love the torn edge next to the scalloped borders...such a neat detail! Very vintage! Thanks for joining in the challenge with us!

  3. hey fellow BCer!!! Love the details of your card! That medallion is fabulous :)

  4. Laurie - love all the vintage elements - just beautiful. Isn't it wonderful when you can get one card to fit multiple challenges. That rarely happens! I'm with you on doing the challenges - they really have expanded my creative thought process and made me a better card maker in the process.
    Thank you for joining the Paper Players again this week.
