Grateful Vintage

Grateful Vintage - It is time for another challenge at Creative Card Crew. This time we want to see vintage and are sponsored by the fabulous Simon Says Stamp. The are the worlds largest on line crafting shop. Their prices are real good too! Check them out here.

For my card I used Tim Holtz Shabby Vintage DP. It is double sided, so I only had to cut one sheet of paper.Yea!!!!

My image is SU's Apothecary, which I stamp with Ranger's Victorian velvet distress inks. It was cut with SU Framelit, inked with Tea Dye distress ink. The sentiment is also from SU's Apothecary set, stamped in black Memento. I added some springtime Flower Soft on the center of some of the flowers, then added the 3 tiny pearls.

My butterfly I made use Rosetta trim, pearl strands, beads and wire. I love how it came out.
My velvet ribbon I got in a grab bag from Michael's. I tied the bow with my Bow Easy, then I added a stick pin that I made with supplies from Pizzazz Aplenty.
My bead branch was cut from a stem.
