Vintage Father's Day

Good Morning everyone and Happy Friday! It's Alphabet Challenge time and today's
letter is... J for Journey!  
For my DT project I made a couple of Father's Day cards.  My first card features a fabulous image from Free Vintage Digital Stamps... 
and my second card features another awesome free digital image from Create with TLC.

I decided to challenge myself and create some Vintage style cards.   I find it very difficult to create something that looks aged and distressed... but I have to say I am very pleased with the way they turned out!! 
After printing the images on cream cs I ran them through my Cuttlebug with a piece of burlap between the plates... it adds a little bit of texture and I love it!  I saw this wonderful tutorial over at Dora's blog so I gave it a try!   The dp and die cuts are from the World Traveler collection by Teresa Collins, the tag was cut with a Cuttlebug die and the letters are cut out with the Sizzix/Tim Holtz Typeset die. 
I hope you can join us and be sure to stop by the challenge blog and check out the fabulous inspiration from the DT!
Have a wonderful weekend and thanks so much for stopping by!
