A Vintage Card

Hi everyone!

We've gone from a heat wave to cooler temperatures and rain now. I actually don't mind the rain and the forests can sure use a healthy drink. Here's another card to share with you, I love the vintage look of it! Sponging and distressing are 2 of my favourite techniques.

The technique I've done is called Popping Pastels.
Here's the recipe:
Cardstock: Kraft and Whisper White
Stamp set: Friends 24-7, En Francais (Background), Itty Bitty Backgrounds
Ink: Pretty in Pink, Certainly Celery, Close to Cocoa and Versamark

Accessories: SU Die Cut Butterflies, Cuttlebug Texture Folder, Leaf Punch, Branch from my garden(!), Half back Pearls, Fine Wire and SU Chalks (same colours as the inks above), Pretty in Pink Tafetta Ribbon, Distressing Tool and Sponges.

Hope you enjoy it!
