Vintage Valentine

Hello, and welcome back to my blog. It's that time... time to start making Valentine's Day cards.
This very "Vintage Valentine" card features an image from my favorite place for all things vintage, The Graphics Fairy, and this baby is LOADED with extra toppings!!

Supplies used:
Image - The Graphics Fairy
Printed papers - Fancy Pants, Fancy-Free Collection and Marah Johnson, Creative Imaginations
Shipping Tag, ribbons, tulle, vintage button, vintage lace, jute twine, cardboard, pearls, rhinesones, the "key" is the switch from an antique lamp (shhhh, don't tell my mother she would flip!) Tim Holts distressed inks, & Theresa Collins stamps. Whew! and as if that wasn't enough, I made a stick-pin but forgot to add it before photographing.

I'm entering my card in the following challenges:
Do You Stack Up? - Challenge #2 No Stress - Distress
The Stamp Man - Challenge #14 Distress
Stamping Vacation - Weaving Ribbon through Lace (in the background, can you see it?)
The Graphics Fairy - Brag Monday (not a challenge, just a place to brag)
Southern Girls Challenge - Challenge #10 Totally loved up!!!

Thanks for visiting again, have a Happy Scrappy Day!
