Very Vintage: Cute Card Thursday, Simon Says Stamps & Show and Kraftin' Kimmie Stamps!

Good evening. I recently bought 3 Kraftin Kimmie Stamps (They are my first and I can't wait to get more). It was just in time for this weeks challenge. They teamed up with Cute Card Thursday and are sponsoring their challenge this week. Perfect two ways to win more Kraftin Kimmie's. Then at Simon Says Stamp and Show which asked for anything Lord Tim Holtz inspired. At the local Hobby Lobby they had Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads for 50% off; welcome to the world of Tim Holtz.
I've recently seen people coloring their stamps all in one color. The brown is supposed to give it an old photo feeling. It's my first attempt and didn't go over perfectly but I'm definatly going to give it another go.

Here's a close up of Ms. Gabrielle from Kraftin Kimmie StampsI colored with my copics.
I used a Tim Holtz ink pad to add color to the background of the marker paper. I also used a Tim Holtz ticket. 
I bought new flowers from Michael's. They were also 50% off. I couldn't beat that and just had to try them. 
My paper is from Stampin Up and My Mind's Eye.
Lace is from Hobby Lobby (Did you guess... 50% off)
The piece of brown paper behind Gabrielle is embossed with a SU embossing folder.
 The lace on the side is also the lace used under Gabrielle's dress.
Hope ya'll have a wonderful week. :), Vanessa
