Vintage Going For A Ride

Hi everyone!  I've never tried a real vintage card before but the name of this lovely image inspired me to give it a try.  My original take on this card included some mini flowers amongst the leaves but they just didn't grow on me so I took them back off and this is what I ended up with.

The image showcased on today's card is the Vintage Going For A Ride digital stamp by Create With TLC. I paired it with some beautiful Flora Bella and Dew Drops patterned paper from the Cosmo Cricket Fleuriste Collection. To give it a vintage look I added some stitching, white lace, white satin ribbon and pearl dew drops.  I also couldn't resist adding the scallop edge along the lace and around the image.

Thanks for stopping by... hope you have a purr-fect day!
