A Vintage Card

Hi, I'm back today with a card for Embellish Magazine's current challenge.

I must admit, I was rather surprised when I finished my card and discovered that I hadn't used a single stamped image!  Now, that's something that doesn't happen often!  I love the color combination that was chosen for this challenge. It's so perfect for the fall.

To make my card, I started with Webster's Pages paper and I distressed it with Tea Dye Distress ink.  Next, I cut two rows of burlap scallops using MFT's Jumbo Scallop die and adhered them in two layers.  I took a small paper doily and aged it with Vintage Photo Distress ink and then sprayed it with Tattered Angels Apple glimmer mist.  While wet, I slightly crumpled it and flattened it out again and let it dry before attaching it to the card.  I used some rust ribbon that I purchased from Stamp Simply and finished it out with a crystal swirl. 

Thanks for stopping by!
