Vintage at it's best!

I have been drooling over this postcard stamp since it was released and finally got my paws on one and made this card! I'm besotted with it and have several all colored up ready to go!

It is a Joy Craft Clear Stamp - Floral Flourishes 6410/0044 and I call it the Old Rose!

I stamped it onto off white card stock and distress it with Pumice Stone, Tea Dye and a hint of Tattered Rose and Vintage Photo around the edges, trimmed it down and mounted it onto burgundy card stock.
The background stamp is a B-Line Design stamp CTD015G Damask Collage and one of my favorites! This stamp was 'ponced' with Pumice Stone and Aged Mahogany Distress Inks and stamped and had a little distressing treatment the same as the postcard. It was also mounted onto a burgundy background and had sheer organza ribbon and beautiful antique lace from my stash, wrapped on the left side.  I die cut the Joy Craft Corner 6002/0135 out of the burgundy card stock and attached it to the top right corner. I brought my lovely Nellie Snellen Floral Punch set FLP031 out of hibernation and punched leaves for my paper rose mounted in the left bottom corner. Of course pearls had to be added to finish off the vintage classic!

I loved this card and feel a 'mass production' may well be on the cards, excuse the pun!

I'm starting to feel the joy creep back into my soul and am having a creative surge, so may well be posting more regularly. Thank you to all who so sweetly left me kind words, hugs and encouragement after my last post. It was the bottom of a dark period and thanks be to God, I'm well and truly 'lifted' by all your love and prayers. God Bless you, one and all!

Enjoy the weekend and thanks so much for the visit!
