A Touch of Vintage Wishes

This week's challenge for Timeless Tuesday over on the Flourishes blog is all about all things vintage!

So when I think of vintage, I think distressing and metal and for some reason, French vintage toile fabric.

Here is my card... a birthday card for a friend.

I used my new "Sweet Peas" stamp to create my background, along with a grid-type stamp from Glitz Design for added texture. I used the greeting from my "Sweet Violets" set.

That pretty lace is from Prima Marketing and I placed 2 pieces opposite to one another and then adhered a row of pearl "ribbon" down the center of the 2 pieces.

If you look closely, I created an embossed border and the stamped inside and outside of it using my new Martha Stewart scoring board. I like the fine embossed line it creates.
