Hi there!
I'm back with a vintage style card.  I'm entering this card over at one of my favorite challenges City Crafter!  The theme is to have metal on your project.  So, I thought...hmmm...surely I must have something metal with all these crafts supplies!:-)  I got to work and came up with this card...

Another view...

The metal on my card are the buttons and clip from SU and the pins from Maya Road.  The card came together fairly quickly yesterday evening.  In fact, my husband told me that he hopes that I finish it before our favorite show comes on, which is Modern Family.  And, I finished it right on time!:-)  Anyways, it felt great making a vintage card again!  All supplies can be seen below!  Thanks so much for visiting here today!  Please stay warm and safe...take care!
