Vintage -- and organized

This week's Off the Wall Crafitness Challenge (OTWC45) is to do a vintage or heart card. The inspiration photo is at lower right. I decided to go vintage, with this stamp of a vintage dress form, and lace and other Victorian elements. Unfortunately, the photo doesn't show the TONS of sponging around the image panel, the card edges and the lace. It really does look quite vintage.

Dress form stamp is from Lost Coast; sentiment from Endless creations. Faux stitching around main panel. Adhesive lace from K&Co. Sepia ink on Dress form and sentiment.

The layout is this week's Card Positioning System sketch CPS 205. CPS is celebrating its 4th anniversary this week.

Organization is a good thing! Last weekend I organized all my tiny embellies in a bead organizer I had bought about 18 months ago. For once, when I went looking for the tiny buttons, I knew exactly where to look and didn't waste 20 minutes digging through piles of supplies. Why did I wait so long to use that organizer???
