Double D - Looking back in Time

If you have a little trouble with the theme on this challenge, I did too.  Just dig in and do it!  After all, it is a challenge.  Here is the mood board for you.
 
Think old and antique things that a lot of us still remember from our childhood. I liked the set of keys and remember a stamp set from Gina K called Grateful Heart, that I could use.  Along with some antique looking paper and I had an inspirational card for you. 

On the top of the background panel, I used white embossing powder to stamp the keys and sponged over with Vintage Photo Distress ink.  The bottom panel is from a 6X6 pad from My Minds Eye.  The stopwatch is an image that I printed out and fussy cut after gluing to a piece of cardstock. Of course, I used Gina K Dark Chocolate and White cardstock. I separated the two panels with a band of gold paper and made a circle ring for the keys that I fussy cut as well.  Don't you love the sentiment on this?  It is from Technique Tuesday Stamp set called Hopes and Dreams.

The prize for this challenge is

  2. Well maybe your struggled with it but you certainly 'knocked it out of the park' as this card couldn't be any more perfect!! Amazing when we 'dig in our stash' what we do have isn't it? Love how you did those keys, they look real. Nice 'talking' with you yesterday too...maybe I'll send you some snow so you remember what it looks like LOL!!

  5. Since I don't do much vintage these days I thought I might have a hard time with it, but once I started I was surprised with all the different directions I could go. And it was tons of fun! I would never know you struggled, seeing as how you came up with something absolutely perfect! The watch, the keys, the vintage paper... and the absolutely wonderful sentiment to go with it. Well done, Barb!
