Embellish Color Challenge Vintage

Time for another Embellish Color Challenge! Check it out... The challenge: To create a vintage themed project using the colors pictured above. The sponsor: Pixie Petals. Check out their gorgeous line of embellishments here.

I must admit, vintage it not my usual style. After putting this challenge off for as long as I could and finally creating a card this morning, I surprisingly found this challenge fairly easy. And here is what i came up with, using a Pixie Petals flower and ribbon...
Started today's card by stamping the Hero Arts Lace Background in Chamomile ink (lightest color in the PTI Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo) onto a Rustic Cream card base. Over that, layered the Hero Arts Wreath Of Leaves in SU Wild Wasabi and a sentiment, from Friendship Jar Holiday Fillers, in Dark Chocolate. Inked the card base edges with the PTI Vintage Touch Tea Dye Duo.
Embellished the wreath with antique brads, rust colored ribbon and a yellow flower.

Now it's your turn to join in the challenge fun! Look here for the challenge details, the Design Teams amazing inspiration and a fabulous prize. Hope to see your challenge creations soon!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great one!
