Vintage Labels

 The current challenge at My Grafico Crafts is St. Patrick’s Day or Fairy Girl. Enter for a chance to win this Fairy digital stamp by Sarah Paris.

Entries will be accepted until February 17th, midnight. Our feature this week is Vintage Labels by Lil Ellaboudy Design. These labels are wonderful for cards, scrapbook pages, or anything else you choose to put a label on.                                                            
                                  My card this week is a vintage design using the pink square label above. Using Word, I saved the square label then chose a vintage design from Graphics fairy to place in the middle of the label. I fussy cut the label then backed it with olive green and added some heart shaped jewels on the corners. This image and frame was placed on DP from a K Pack @ Michael's. You might notice the several layers of punched lace near the top of the card. For this a Martha Stewart punch was used. The olive green ribbon was recycled from a gift package.  I plan to use this card as a Valentine Day Card. It could however, be used for any occassion.

                   This is a close up shot of the details on the image.
