Vintage Anniversary

I have always loved the vintage look, but always felt intimidated when trying to do that look on a card. Well, I thought I would give it a shot. Here is what I came up with.
I used Anna Griffin paper, which just screams vintage to me. I really love her paper, it is so beautiful. I also used my new Martha Stewart doily lace punch. It makes such a nice border. The sentiment is from Anniversary Birds by Verve Stamps.

On the inside, I just added strips of scrap paper to the bottom and stamped another sentiment from Anniversary Birds in Ranger Old Paper ink.
Supplies: Paper-PTI Vintage Cream, Anna Griffin PP, vellum; Ink-Palette Moulin Rouge, Ranger Old Paper Distress Ink; Other-Heart Nestibilities, Offray crochet ribbon, Target satin ribbon, prima, silk and Bride's confetti flowers from Michaels, buttons, brads, embroidery floss, mounting tape, Martha Stewart doily lace edge punch

Very pretty! Love your watermark too - still trying to figure out how to make one of those!

This photo does not show the detail beauty of your card. To see it in person will leave you breathless, and the receiver of this work of art will be mesmorized by it's detail and true beauty. As I told you last night, "Awesome, breathless piece of art". I am so proud of you honey! :):)
