Something old Vintage card

Good Morning :)
After several days of heavy rain today has started with some lovely sunshine :)
We have a new challenge today on the Crafts 4 Eternity Recipe challenge blog...


We would like you to share projects that feature something old or forgotten.
sassy studio designs
Our fabulous sponsors this week are Sassy Studio Designs who are kindly offering one randomly selected winner 4 images from their gorgeous collection.

My card this week came together quite quick! I used papers from My Minds Eye Pretty Things 6x6 pad, distress all the edges with scissors then inking them with Vintage Photo Distress Ink. I added some gold Inka Gold to finish them off.
You can get your hands on a Pretty Things Grab bag HERE it includes the 6x6 paper pad and gorgeous Washi tape!

I then grabbed my flower and mixed media stash boxes to make the centre piece of the card.

The main rose is fairly new, but the two small roses are old. 

I found some gold stamens at the bottom of the box I had forgotten about and added them into the arrangement along with some old buttons, wire and jump rings.

There are some punched leaves, beads and canvas flowers in there too!

Finally I gave the whole card a spritz of gold Tattered Angels and pink Perfect Pearls mists.
Then a sprinkle of Gold paint followed by some Gesso.

All the challenge details, entry and gorgeous DT inspiration can be found HERE.
I hope the sun is shining where you are have a great day
Thanks for stopping by
