Simply Create Too Challenge #45 Vintage

Simply Create Too's challenge is vintage. That was a true challenge for me. I guess that's why I joined a design team - to expand my card making skills...... so I struggled a bit with this one. I am just not a vintage type of gal....Although I do admire people who can do that. 

I used the  Hero Arts Just saying Hi and Hero Arts Keyboard Alphabet sets. I ripped out a page of my local phone book and used a tag. The background paper is from K&C. The phone receiver handle is attached with a little ball chain -  (kind of the mini version of a toilet chain) and as you can see, it is removable.

I am totally in love with this - especially the removable receiver... :) And I am proud of my first vintagy card, although I don't think I will add this to my repertoire....

You still have a little more than six days to play in the challenge! Come on over and motivate you kids too - there is a separate kids entry!
