Three Challenges in One


This card works for three challenges. The sketch is from Unscripted Sketches #39. Stamp Simple challenge #123 is Very Vintage. The image was sent to me by a friend I distressed the edges with a CTMH distressing tool. The colors are for Color Throwdown. I used SU So Saffron for the base. I embossed it with CB Dotted Swiss folder. I layered the image on Melon Mambo and Old Olive which I think really helped the colors in the image pop. The stamp and ribbon are both Melon Mambo from SU.
I love the little cupid. I think the next time I use this image I will use an oval instead of a rectangle to make it look more like a cameo. That would be a little more vintage.
So What do you think?
Thanks for stopping,
