Deedee's challenge "Very Vintage"

This challenge was to make a vintage style card. I used Deedee's "Bloom Where You're Planted" set of digis. It comes with this sweet image and 3 different sentiments: One of which I used here. Check out her blog to see lots of inspiration, and this will lead you to her store if you would like to order some images. I also have a link to her store on my side bar if you want to go straight to the store. I love Deedee's images and she's such a sweet lady to boot! DP is EK Sucess "Natural Bamboo" and a small piece of script paper from my collection. The beige paper is from stash and the black base is S.U. I used the cuttlebug to emboss the oval. The leaves around the flower is a MS punch. The pearls are from my stash. They are a very light lavendar color even though they look white. The flower and the antique brad are also from the stash as is the lace. The image was colored on PS Elements and I added some white gel pen and some glitter for the sand and inked around the edge with brown ink.
I used a MS punch on the inside with the same paper that was used on the outside of the card. Thanks for checking it out. Have a great day!
