Stampin' Up! Upsy Daisy and I create a Vintage Thank You Card

Ok, so I'm not really a vintage card maker, it has something to do with the fact that I like my cards to have nice clean lines and not overly embellished.... but, I made one that I'm quite happy with :)
This is a Soft Suede card base, which has been sponged around the edges, I have added a strip of Daffodil Delight Pattern Stack Designer Series Paper which was also sponged with Soft Suede to tone it down a bit... I then focused on my main image panel, which has been embossed and sponged, using the Emboss Resist technique, which has come back into fashion :) I used the Upsy Daisy silhouette and sponged it in Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight, and Soft Suede. The text stamp is from my stash, and I thought it worked well with the vintage theme I was going for. I stamped my sentiment, using my Stampin' Write Markers to selectively stamp only half the sentiment, from Upsy Daisy. I attached a little bit of vintage vanilla lace, and a button to finish this card off.
I am entering this one into two challenges, the first is the sketch challenge over at The Sweetest Thing, and secondly to a new one for me, Simply Stampin'  Challenge, which was the colourse Peach Parfait, Daffodil Delight, Soft Suede and Very Vanilla
I also have another card to show you in this post, one that has Stampin' Up! card stock, but the rest from other companies on it...
This is a Whisper White card base, which I have layered with Baja Breeze and Crumbcake. The teddy is my favourite, he is a Tatty Teddy stamp I bought a while ago, but this is the first time he's made it onto a card! The wording is from one of my dear craft friends, who owns a Cricut... 
I am entering this card into the Card Patterns sketch... which, I think if you turn it on it's side, it kind of looks like... I sat there with the sketch next to me, so I tried :)
Ok, that's all from me for tonight...
Happy Stamping! And, don't forget my Blog Candy!
