Vintage card - Just for U :)

Its my second time try at Vintage style. Earlier card can be seen here. Love this style for the dark tones of brown, beige, tans, black hues and still creating magic.

This is the last card for this year 2014 and also DT inspiration card for the Cardabilities challenge.

Felt like IBS Vintage floral PP is so apt for this theme and so matted this against the black CS. To achieve the look, pp is roughed,rolled at edges using scissors, distressed with vintage photo DI and to give a bit more darker shade, distressed pp at various places and stamped randomly with IBS script stamp from Friends forever stamp set using same DI. Am in love with the effect it has created on bg.

Used Doily die and cut the doilies of various sizes in brown CS. And on it, arranged the floral using Joycrafts die. This time, tried a different flower other than my usual flower style. Hope you like it!

For stamens, used CLD embellishment dies and cut in black CS. The rose strips are diecut in white and distressed with Vintage photo DI and the florishes of black and white to balance the flowers.
Sentiment is stamped in oval scallop diecut and distressed with DI.

Thats all from me :)

Wishing all my readers, blogger-pals, a very very Happy and Wonderful New Year 2015. May your days ahead be more joyous and lovely :)

Thanks so much for the support and lovely comments, which is the only source of driving force for me.
