Take Me To The Vintage Church!!!

Don't you love it when you see a challenge and know you are going to love it!!! Merry Monday's Christmas challenge blog has a new challenge and it is to put a Church on your project and at the same time Jingle Belles Rock a Vintage challenge so I put the two together and this is what I came up with.

Believe it or not it's another PSX stamp, now this has not seen ink (by me) as I bought it at a yard sale or some sort of sale  but at the time I loved PSX stamps and really had to have it. The image was coloured with copics and cut with a large spellbinder circle. I had some gold paper and made a rick rack frame for the stamp and popped it up on the embossed background. The frame was made with the large scalloped circle die and the large inverted circle die, when cutting it I off set the inverted die so the points were across from the scallops. Most of the card is made with Very Vanilla cardstock with the exception of the gold frame.

I had the vanilla lace out for another project and the button was sitting on my table and just begging to be used.

The inside was finished with a gold embossed sentiment.
