Vintage Anniversary

For today's card I thought I revert back to the good ole stamping days. You know a bit of embossing, distressing, resisting and even using some vintage lace with pearls.

I have to tell you  I am CASING a card! OMG you say! Yes I saw this card on Hero Arts blog, and fell in love with it. The rules to CASE a card is you must change 3 things.  So I have changed the stamps, DP paper and embellishments!

The stamps I'm using today are all from Stamping Bella.  I started out stamping I 'AM" Script in versamark on cream c/s and embossing it with white e/p. Applied a light layer of versamagic sea breeze over the embossed script. Sponged antique linen and then tea dye distress inks around edges. Then stamped Solid Funky Grass over script using Memento bamboo leaves. Next layer was torn then sponged with tea dye.  The sentiment was stamped using versafine Sepia. 

I made a rosette using the same dp paper which is from Bo Bunny, punched a couple of leaves using Martha Stewart leave punch.  Added some glitter and a tiny pearl to the rosette. I was going to use a piece of chiffon ribbon to tie around the bottom of the card but decided on this pretty lace intertwined with pearls.  I really like how this turned out.  How about you?

Till next time..... Pauline
