Anything Goes -- at Sweet Stamps

I am having so much fun with my guest designing for Sweet Stamps this month. The month is going WAY too fast!
A new challenge started yesterday over on the Sweet Stamps blog, and it's the always popular theme of "Anything Goes".
When I was given the opportunity to guest design for Sweet Stamps, I was also given the chance to pick out some stamps to design with.  The first one I chose was this dashing young lady, Margery (Margery 527).  She's a beauty, and I HAD to color her!

Isn't she fun? I paired her with some old fashioned looking papers I picked up from Hobby Lobby, added a nostalgic sentiment, also found in the Sweet Stamps store, "Old Fashioned Wish" (9065E). Both images were lightly sponged with Tim Holtz distress ink in worn paper to further the 'aged' look.  Some Close To My Heart ribbon, a stick pin created for me by a friend, a Bazzill card base, and voila, the card is complete! I hope you fall in love with Margery!


  1. You did a fantastic job of coloring her, and pairing her with vintage papers!! Love!

  2. Your vintage lady looks so nice in purple, wonderful card!

  3. Time flies when you're having creative fun, Julie! Your Margery is lovely!! Beautiful card my dear...as always!!

  4. Beautiful card, love the pop of purple from her dress! So pretty!
