My First Try at Vintage

I am love with the vintage look...buttons, ribbons, lace, papers, all sorts of cool stuff. I recently placed an order with Crafty Secrets and got all of my goodies. I immediately jumped into it head first. I have never made anything that was "vintage" but I love the look when I see other people's projects. I really want to get into this and am so happy to have found a company like Crafty Secrets. I can't wait for their new stamps so I can get some more :).

On a personal note, I am in my last semester of my Master's degree in Spanish and am trying to get everything in order because my thesis is due on April 11th. I'm really excited but I also realize that it's just two months away. It just seems surreal because we are already into our fifth week of class and it is just flying by. I can't wait to have more time for other things...to expand my purse business and become even more devoted to card making and altering stuff. A part of me would really like to get back into scrapbooking but cards come to me so much easier.

Okay, here's the card!
