Best of British event - day 3

We are already at day 3 with our Best of British event that is going on at Crafty ribbons Pure inspiration blog. If you still haven't checked what this is all about, go to the blog now. I promise you won't be sorry. :) There are lots of inspiration from the DT and each day there's a new prize for grabs. Today's prize was donated by Crafty ribbons. :D Ali and Tony are kindly giving the lucky winner these wonderful ribbons.

All you need to do to have the chance to win these ribbons is to hop over the Crafty ribbons Pure inspiration blog and leave your info with Linky. Also, if you haven't checked the day 1 and day 2 posts yet, you might want to do this too, because there are some yummy prizes for grabs too. ;)

I made a vintage card for today. :) Look, here it is ...

Some time ago I found this gorgeous free vintage teacup digi stamp and I also found a matching sentiment digi and couldn't wait to use it. I didn't do any coloring, I just applied a tiny bit of TH brushed corduroy distress ink on the images. I made the papers myself. The background paper was originally white, so I colored it with TH distress ink and stamped over it with Stampabilities Faded text backgound stamp (you can see the tutorial on how I make this kind of paper; on tutorail I also showed you how to add glitters, but I didn't do this here, otherwise it's the same technique). The paper on the back of the teacup was just plain brown so I stamped over it with Viva decor Floral embellishment stamps. I also used my border punch and the "Stops for tea" ribbon from Crafty ribbons (from the Best of British collection). It was perfect for this card.

I hope you like my card and that you'll stop at Crafty ribbons Pure inspiration blog to see what my teamies made too.
