Springtime vintage altered frame

This is one of those $1 wooden frames that I altered. Didn't come out as nice as I wanted it to. I ripped the paper into strips and then sponged the edges with ink.
DP Springtime Vintage
Ink Rose red
flowers, ribbon, lace all from my stash

Oh, and here is an Easter card. I got it from a featured stamper a couple of weeks ago but don't remember which week it was. You know who you are and thanks for the inspiration.

Christmas card

Here is the 4th card, SC316.
Cardstock: Kraft, some vintage CTMH
Ink: CTMH ponderosa pine
Stamp Inkadinkadoo
All 4 of the cards were made with stamps from the same set. I picked it up for half-price at JoAnns after Christmas. I like them because they are vintage looking. I was going to put stickles on this tree but forgot to do it. Maybe I'll go back and do it. Should have sponged the edges but I forgot that, too.

Christmas card

Here is SC315.

Cardstock: soft suede, cherry cobbler
Holiday DP
Ink soft: suede, versamark
Stamp Inkadinkadoo
I have trouble with blank space on my cards so I found a stamp and used it to create kind of a background with Versamark. My bow looks like it is upside down. All edges were sponged with Soft Suede.

Christmas card

This card is for SC314.
White cardstock
DP and red paper from my stash
Stamp from Inkadinkadoo
Red crystals
All edges are sponged with Vintage photo distress ink.

Christmas cards

OK, I stole some else's idea from last year to make a Christmas card for each week's sketch challenge. I'm a little behind but made 4 cards today. This is the first on for SC313. Paper is Cherry Cobbler and the holiday DP. Stamp is from Inkadinkadoo. Ink is Always Artichoke. Gold brads. Edges are all sponged with Vintage Photo distress ink.
