ABC Challenge..'O' is for Old Fashioned

It's time for another challenge over on the ABC Challenge blog, as we've now moved to weekly challenges. The challenge for this week is 'O' is for Old Fashioned, now this can be vintage, distressed look or an old fashioned image. The sponsor for this challenge is Meljen's Designs and the DT were lucky enough to have a play with some of their images.

For my card I blended Spiced Marmalade and Dried Marigold DI over white card stock and then stamped with the Polka Dot background Stampin' Up stamp with Coffee Archival ink. I used the Tim Holtz die to cut a shape from Grunge Paper and blended Brushed Corduroy DI over it and did some faux stitching around the edge. The vintage lady is part of a Crafty Individuals stamp and the small flowers are from the Meljen's image that I printed slightly larger, as are the hearts, and shaded with ProMarkers. The letters are cut using the Vintage Market Tim Holtz Sizzix die and the swirl is another Tim Holtz die, again cut from Grunge Paper and given the DI treatment.

The rose is made using a freebie stamp that came with a Craft Stamper magazine, and I used the same technique to make the rose as I did on my altered box, a couple of posts ago.

I'm entering this card into the following challenges :
