Lovely Ladies with The Stampsmith

Hi Dreamers!
I am back with the rest of the cards I made Using The Stampsmith's full sheet Belinda and Friends.  See my original post HERE.  I went all pink and girly, again!  I am just in such a girly mood.

The card base is made from Blush Blossom from Stampin' Up.  The DP is from Basic Grey. The image was stamped with Vintage Sepia from VersaFine.   Here is the second card.

The card base is made from cream CS and completely covered with a med pink DP.  Printed DP is from Basic Grey.   I stamped the image on Blush Blossom with Sienna Archival Ink (Ranger).  

I  found out about a  new Vintage Challenge blog called Frilly and Funky.  (Thanks LeAnne)  The first challenge is to show your favorite vintage style.

I have been sewing this week getting the bridal accessories together for my friend's daughter's wedding.  I am working on the veil today.  I finished the wrap for the mother of the bride and a lace covered purse for the bride.   I have several fascinators (decorative  pieces hat are worn in the hair)  to make too.  Fun, fun, fun.
Have a great day!!  Love ya.
