Artful Times Challenge 30--Vintage

For the challenge on Artful Times I have made a birthday card. If I have time next week, I'll make a fabric tag as well, vintage lends itself to fabric. I inked the background with distress inks, and used one of Tim's embossing folders. I stuck  a piece of paper lace at the bottom. and a border at the side. After I'd put the image on, I added the flowers. I couldn't resist making a vintage postcard as well, and used my favourite TH die of the dress form. Embossed it with the swirly folder, and inked it with Distress ink- Tea Dye. Stamped the other elements, and distressed them. Added lace and buttons.
