Vintage Birthday Card

One of the ladies from card class asked for a vintage card.  This is what I came up with. I love the combination of Baked Brown Sugar, Very Vanilla and one other colour. 

To get the different colour shades I stamped off the stamp so that I had dark and light shades of the same colour.  I layered the flowers with dimensionals.

I also used the masking technique.  I roughly tore around the edges of a post it note and then placed it in the centre of the Very Vanilla card stock before stamping with the Hardwood stamp.

I sponged around the edges of the cardstock layers and also lightly over the doily so that it would blend in. I distressed the edges of the Rose Red cardstock and tore the Very Vanilla cardstock.  I rolled the edge of the doily and where I tore the cardstock to give it a more distressed look.
