Grungeboard Birthday Card using Card Patterns #2

I found another great new sketch challenge blog sometime last week while I was blog hopping. The blog is Card Patterns and I used this week's sketch to create this card for my friend Kelly Anne that I know from Scrapbook.com. She has a vintagey style so I wanted to make something in that style (or close to it) even though I have never done that. I'm fairly certain she doesn't visit my blog so i'll post it here. But Kelly Anne if you do stop by, please don't look! Here is what I came up with:


Materials: Tim Holtz Grungeboard brackets;pp-K&CO,Michael's kraft paper,Fancy Pants, SR afterthoughts rub ons; MM Teal Ledger alpas, Fancy Pants fiber, K & Co. Classic k Baily chipboardbracket, Cuttlebug Swiss Dots embossing folder, Colorbox cats eye ink, starlight topcoat

I loved the grungeboard!! I would describe it as elastic chipboard. It has a smell to it, kind of leathery and I like it. It reminds me of a family trip to Lake George NY, or DisneyWorld, or something like that and being in a gift shop looking at Native American leather products. I love that I can't rip it; it was fun to ink and sand and I'm going to get more of it!

Thanks for stopping by!
Michelle :)
