Vintage Kindness

I love the vintage look, but I don't actually have very many items of the vintage variety. But, I was inspired to make do with what I had on hand. This is the result:
The card base is Crumb Cake (which I adore). The next layer is Very Vanilla. I stamped the flourish from Baroque Motifs, first lightly in Crumb Cake, then with Marina Mist. The flowers were stamped in Blushing Bride and the flower centers are self adhesive rhinestones. I would have preferred pearls. but I haven't purchased any of those yet. The pink strip on the left is punched with the eyelet border and the sentiment is punched with the oval punches. The ribbon is retired SU! stock I still had on hand: Ivory Organdy Ribbon. Once I tied a square knot, I used my embossing gun to melt the ends a bit for more of a vintage look.

Don't forget to sign up for my stamp camp. coming up in December!
