Vintage Style for PPA80

Those were the the Inspiration for this week's Pals Paper Art Challenge! Vintage style is a weak spot for me for sure! I am a clean and crisp kind of gal when it comes to stamping. One of my Stamping Goals for 2011 is to make more vintage type of cards. How did I do?

The Bold color of her skirt was the first thing that jumped out out me when I saw this photo. So that is the color combo I went with. I antiqued the Cherry Cobbler with Basic Black to mute it a little bit. The result almost looks like suede.
