I have been visiting Betsy Veldman's blog, Paper, Scissors, and Superheroes, for quite a while. I have looked in when she had challenges but was never brave enough to do one. I saw this vintage challenge and wanted to do it. I finally got started tonight after being delayed. It expired at midnight, but I wasn't sure what time zone she was in so I am posting this card anyway. I was first delayed, early voting, long lines. Then when I finally finished my card in plenty of time to do this post, my pictures downloaded, but my Kodak program would not open, yes had to shut down everything. By the time I got everything back up and my photo's loaded again it was 11:58PM my time. I wondered if this card was indeed so scary to my "older" computer, that it did something to the picture program! Just kidding. Be sure and check out Betsy's wonderful blog.
The challenge was to use something vintage. Betsy used a page out of an old book to make a card and that's when I knew I wanted to do this. I am not real good with lace and doilies, but I have a few of my children's books including some loose pages from 1948-49. I am not sure when this book was published, nor do I know it's name. In spite of the fact that I had over 100 books and they were in good condition, after my mom was no longer able to look after them, people who worked in the house allowed visiting children to look at them. Many were taken as well, as my mom had them locked up in a closet. I used some card stock from Graphic 49 Alice and Wonderland, my card base is Stampin'Up! Pumpkin Pie.I added a bow, some buttons a tag and stamping, but my focal point is this beautiful page, trick or treaters. This is what they looked like in 1949. If you could see this IRL you would notice that the girls are dressed up as men and the boys as ladies! Too funny! This page is the only vintage element in my card. I guess I am vintage as well because I was born in that year. Thanks for wading through all the gab! Hope you enjoy the card and have a glorious Saturday!
