Vintage Card

Hello friends,

Since a long time, I wanted to try my hands with the Vintage style and here's my first attempt with it. I want to give this card to my college friend who really loves antique pieces and loves to add up to her collection. I wanted to also tell her a Thank you for all that she has done to me.But, as we women get married and settle down with our families, its so difficult to meet and spend time with each other.So, I am to give this card to her when I meet her personally, and hope so, that its gonna be soon.
Onto my card, firstly love the ways its turned out. I used the Black and Brown colours only to give it the antique rusted look.Also, love the patterned papers used here.Isn't the stamped lady gorgeous? I decided to make this card soon after I bought this stamp set.I have also used border stamp at the bottom of the card, and yes distressed the edges of the pattern paper with the most popular Vintage ink, the Vintage photo, No wonder, why we crafters are crazy with this colour.With the flowers,I used the MFT Prima Donna petals to make it and I am loving this die to the core.

Here is a pic of the full card,
