Happy Tuesday Friends!

Today's card is for a challenge over at Paper Crafts Magazine.  Stampendous and Paper Crafts are teaming up today and I love that!!  

The stamped image is called Plume Portrait.  I colored her with Copic markers and then took some Distress Ink and ran it over the entire image.  I love the way it added even more vintage to the image.  I tore and inked and then tore and inked some more until I was perfectly happy with my focal point. I used papers from My Mind's Eye Lost and Found Market Street Collection (6x6 paper pad) and added a fun seam binding bow and chipboard button.  I also distressed the edges of all the papers so that the entire card would scream vintage.  I still needed a sentiment so I used one from Stampendous: Orchid Greetings.

Now it's YOUR TURN TO WIN because Paper Crafts Magazine is hosting a giveaway on their Facebook page today and three lucky winners will win this fun Stampendous stamp.  Head over to the Paper Crafts Magazine Facebook Page for all the details!  Also be sure to check out the Stampendous blog too because a little birdie told me there would be a giveaway there too!

I'll be back tomorrow with an inspirational card to show you.  See you then.
