Vintage Magnolia's

Are you an American Idol fan like me? I was soooo disappointed when Pia got voted off....whaaaaa. But I cannot complain because I didn't vote. Ahhhhh. When I heard she was gonna sing on Dancing with the Stars tonight, I made sure I watched AND recorded it. Now I can replay it a thousand times. LOL.....little exaggeration. I brought out my stamping "toys" and worked on my Lollipop Crafts Challenge card while watching TV. This week's Challenge #36 is Shabby Chic or Vintage. Actually, at first, I thought 'OMG, this is a tough one. Hmmm, maybe I won't enter this week.' But I rummaged thru my "collection" of unused stamps. I didn't have any "chic" images but found my Magnolia stamp that I had for a while. Think, think, think......hmmmm, I thought if I distressed the edges, it would give my card the "vintage" look. I distressed the paper, doily, even the leaves and this is what I came up with. What do you think?

If you wish to enter this fun challenge, hop over to Lollipop Crafts for the deets.

'kay, it time to hit the sack. Nighty night.
