Altenew September Inspiration Challenge
Yup, this is the gorgeousness that we get to play with as inspiration over at the Altenew September Inspiration Challenge this month. I never think vintage when I think of Altenew, ever, but I did when I saw this photo. It's the ticking stripes that did it. I immediately remembered one of my most favourite Christmas scrapbooking papers. Alas, not a snippet of it remains and I can't for the life of me remember who made it. But I got all nostalgic and made up this three card set with some scraps of Echo Park striped paper that I had on hand - it's all gone now :( ...
I'm calling it pretty but simple vintage. :) I love this Altenew Vintage Roses set so much and can't believe how different the feel of the roses can be depending on what colour combinations you use. The ones I used here remind me of old-time greeting cards.
