Vintage Holiday Greetings

Hello everybody. Thank you for peeking in :-) today's card was inspired by a sketch i have seen in old files over on Mojo Monday. The sketch had scallop's at the top and it seams i can not stop using my new laces i had to take the opportunity to go from there. I have just added a bunch more layers to my layout .

The lace is a very bright white and it simply did not match my card. So i first airbrushed it with E50 and that still did not give me the look i wanted, so i have used lots of Shimmerz Antique Linen to stain it. Love them... not only for the shimmer they give my artwork.

For the sentiment... usually i cut the inner sentiment out and stamp it again onto a different color and add it into the center. It's just all the time the same what i do .. so, i thought.. lets make it look like a grommet. Looking at it now.. i think i like my "always way" better but it is nice to just try things out.

Before i forget.. the ribbon was adhered with narrow Soockwang tape to the top. This stuff sticks and this way the ribbon is nice and straight.
Stamps: Tilda with roses "Jolly Collection" available though Magnolia-liocus, Stampin up (Sentiment)
Papers: My Mind' s Eye "Laundry Line", Stampin up (So Saffron, Rose Red),
Neenah Ultra Smooth for coloring
Embellishments: Making Memories "Vintage brads", Lace, Shimmerz Spritz "Vintage lace", Stickles and Hero Arts Pearl sticker
Copic Sketch Markers for coloring and aging the ribbon


I would like to say "Thank you" to everybody who participated in my blog candy. Be sure to swing by again to check cause i have some more to share with you. Lots of love, i appreciate all of you!
