My love for Vintage continues...


I participated in two organized swaps this year at Convention.  Both were Vintage swaps. This is the first swap.

 I love 2-step stamping and Stippled Blossoms is perfect for Vintage cards!  For this card, I used Primrose Petal ink and stamped off twice for the first flower image.  I stamped the same color, full strength, over it with the second flower image. 
The frame is from Papaya Collage (page 75 in the Annual Catalog).  I didn't want a "shiny" frame so I mixed Gold & Pewter embossing powders to give it a more "tarnished" look.  I tucked some Very Vanilla seam binding and then spritzed the whole card with Vanilla Shimmer Smooch Spritz.  The large pearl in the center of the flower finishes it off.
