Sugar Creek Hollow #13 Vintage Fashion with Digi Doodle Shop

Happy  Saturday!!
Today I would like to share with you my piece I did for this week's 
"Vintage Fashion"  Challenge at Sugar Creek Hollow.
We have a wonderful sponsor this week, the Digi Doodle Shop,
 and they supplied me with the digital stamp:  1800 Vintage Dress 4 below which I chose to color in GIMP.

So get creating something  "Vintage Fashion" in the Vintage, Shabby Chic or Primitive style and link up at Sugar Creek Hollow for a chance to win a $10 gift certificate to the Digi Doodle Shop.

If you use spots or polka dots on your creation you can link up to the  Digi Doodle shop Challenge this week:  "Lets go Spotty"  My Vintage Fashion girl has polka dots in her dress as well as on the background paper of the portfolio I made.  Here is the front.  
Pin It!
(LOL...I made my own sparkly "pinterest pin it button"...LOL)
All my Yummy Embellishments came from Pro 31 Designs.  I have used the mint green and champagne, and ivory large flower shaped flatback pearls.  Mulberry curly roses, May arts leaf ribbon trim (green is not pictured on the site, but is in the drop down color choices), clear crystal flowers, ivory beaded spray, and crystal wheat sprays!!  Don't you just LOVE my sentiment in the lower right.  I won it last week playing at the Art With No Boundaries!  Isn't it fabby!  I just gave it a background color in Inkscape, to match my creation.  Thank you Chris!!  The rose in the upper right is one I painted in GIMP.
The White Vintage Frame is one of my favorite 
Gecko Galz images!  You can see it peaking out from behind all my embellishments above and below.  All of my pieces are die cuts that I created in Inkscape and used the print and cut feature of my Black Cat Cougar.  I will be joining in this weeks challenge at Art with No Boundaries: Anything goes and "Framed"  I inked all the edges of my portfolio and diecuts with Ranger's Distress ink in old paper.
I used a perfect medium pen by Ranger to outline my frame die cut and applied perfect pearls in perfect copper.  Here you can see how I used one of the flower shaped flatback pearls for the center of my flower.
The background paper is the one I have been using lately that I created in GIMP using a rose image from Karen the Graphic's Fairy.  I created a few note cards with the same image, but I kept them more flat so they would fit in the card portfolio.
One last look at the front!
Please come and join us at Sugar Creek Hollow.  I look forward to seeing your creations!!

I will be sharing this in a couple Inspiration linky parties:
