My name, Karin, was pretty common when I was growing up...just not the spelling. Unless you are of German heritage like I am. So, I have spent my entire life answering the question, "What is your name"?... With, "Karin...with an "i"! Who knew it would come in handy all these years later when I went to name my blog.

Vintage Thank You

Happy Weekend!

Before I get to my card, I just wanted to give you a little FYI...Cheryl has some awsome Stampin' Up blog candy!  Go to her blog to enter...It's super easy :)

This card today has a lot of texture to it.  I decided to make a vintage looking thank you card using some  stamps from Scrolls Work.  I made a tag using the stamp Ruffled Feathers #4071.  She is stamped in  Onyx Black Versafine ink and then distressed with some Antique brown ink along the edges.The backgound paper was embossed and sanded to bring out the color underneath (I purchased it at a local scrapbook store, but there was no company name on it...It's very unique because the color underneath the black is metallic.)  I added a bit of real lace and paper with a lace pattern.  The layered flower embellishment I assembled myself using prima flowers, beads, text from an old book and a pearl brad.  The thank you sentiment comes from the stamp Personal Holidays #1601.

Thanks for stopping in today and have a great weekend!
