Vintage Beauty....

Oh these colors for the CR84FN challenge #23 just scream vintage to me!! And
so I played and tweaked to come up with this little vintage number....

Graphic 45 Le Romantique paper for the tag, the rose, the stripe, and the
little "stamp". The rose is coated in distress rock candy stickles for a look
of "sugared" vintage. The tag was inked with vintage photo distress ink,
then coated with Tim Holtz Distress Crackle Medium (clear of course!) and
then re-inked with vintage photo to bring out the cracks in the crackle after
it dried. Then just the little touches, a crocheted flower from a friend (thanks
DebG!) and Webster's Pages sparklers, black seam binding bow, and the lacy
edge on the of my new Martha punches....ooooo is this one
gorgeous or what?!!

A little trip down memory lane....ok....hold on, I'm not THAT I'm
hoping to get some scrapping check in soon......I'll try not to be
gone for so long!!
