VINTAGE with INKY BACKGROUND




"why fit in when you were born to stand out"
 Dr Seuss


...today I'm sharing with you a card that has a vintage theme...


...the front paper is by Prima 6x6 Almanac...


...the background of the topper is made of corrugated card distressed with Tim Holtz Inks & Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists & some Perfect Pearls...


...the heart has been distressed and crackle glazed (but doesn't show up to well on the photo)...all wrapped up with some vintage lace...


...I'm entering this card for two challenges...
