Perpetual Bliss Telephone Round 2_edited-1
I used Perpetual Bliss for my project. How freakin’ cute is that vintage telephone image?  Be still my heart!!  I stamped the image with Versamark and heat embossed it with black EP.  I cut the telephone cord with my Silhouette and I printed the vintage phone book (found the image on Google images) onto vellum – how weird is it that I don’t have a telephone book at my house?!  LOL

I’ll be back on Saturday with the name of the winner!  Good luck hoppers!!

FANTASTIC card!! Love the number embossed background and use of yellow pages. Again seems like its must-have stamp set!
Have a great day!

Kryssi said...

Yes, you are most definitely clever! I didn't use the phone image on any of my projects this month but I desperately wanted to! I even dug up some phone book patterned paper (no phone books here either), but still I came up with nada.. well, i did, but they were so awful I had to chuck them. Your card is BRILLIANT!!
