When I made up this card, I was in the mood for something old-fashioned and almost Victorian in style. So I pulled papers in muted but strong shades of aqua and purple, added lots of pearls and faux-pearl accents, and used dark ink and cream paint to give an aged and distressed effect around the edges.
I punched the vintage rose image into a small oval shape, then layered a couple more oval die cuts beneath it...adding some lilac faux-pearl trim with a Viva Decor Pearl Pen...
After tea-dying the scalloped lace, I cut it into a couple different pieces to layer beneath the vintage image, adding some Kaisercraft mini pearls to the flower centers along the top of the lace...
