TGF Vintage

The Greeting Farm's Farm Fresh Friday challenge this week is vintage, so I decided to combine it with the blog hop sketch challenge for Stamp Scrap and Doodle.  
I generally use images of people, so I thought I would change it up and use a floral instead.  I tried a few new things on this card.  The first is the cracked glass technique ~ I have always wanted to do it, but never tried it until now ~ I thought it would be good for a vintage feel.  The second new thing I tried was making my own flower ~ I really like how it turned out!  However, I cannot see actually mailing a card with one of these on it since it sits very high up.  The pin is from my collection of vintage items and I added 3 vintage beads to it before placing it behind the flower.  The edges of the DP are distressed and then sponged with creamy caramel ink.

I am also entering this card in the following:
ABC Tutorial Challenge - Cracked Glass
Hand Full of Stamps - Open Challenge
Fussy and Fancy Friday - Dazzle Us
Allsorts - 3,2,1 - 3 DP, 2 types embellies (pearls/lace), 1 flower
Anyone for Anya - Flower Power (I hope this counts as it is a TGF stamp set)
