Vintage Style Ribbon Challenge Card

Hi Friends!

Thought I'd create a card to play along with the latest Really Reasonable Ribbon "Flowers and Ribbon" Challenge for this week.  I am an admirer of my HC teammate Kathy Clement (Kathy by Design) who designs the most amazing vintage style cards.  Her latest one is for this weeks RRR challenge so I was inspired to play along!

I used paper from Prima Marketing's Almanac Collection, Hug Snug Ivory Seam Binding, and of course couldn't help but make some flowers using Heartfelt Creations Bountiful Roses dies.

The image of the woman is from "Grandmas Attic Collection" called "French Ladies" collection by Pion Design -- I get these from Frantic Stamper (she has a gorgeous selection of Pion Designs - check it out!). 

I used Walnut Stain Distress Ink and Memento Luxe Angel Pink ink to distress the flowers, the paper edges and the ribbon to coordinate everything.  My embellishments are some swirl pearls from Want2Scrap and a bead charm from Michael's (found in my stash).

TFL, I'm so glad you stopped by!
