Have a great day!

Good Afternoon!

**This is my 2nd post of the day, for my Wilson Designs Stamps Day 2 Release card scroll down or click here**

I have a little card to share.   It was one of those days where I grabbed a little of this and a little of that. It was also one of those days where it didn't turn out anything like I visioned it, but I am ok with that.

I started this card using Kraft card stock and added a layer of textured cream patterned paper to frame my card.  I then added a strip of aqua patterned paper to the right side of my card front.
A doily was added to the main panel followed by some rickrack and scalloped trimmings topped with a strip of patterned paper.   Some twine was wrapped multiple times around the center and tied in a bow.
I die cut the image from a vintage book. I intended to only use this as a background paper, but I actually liked the image to use alone as a focal point. I had some black lace trim in my stash and added to the bottom of the vintage book print image.  

I punched a heart in Kraft card stock which was run through my crimper to give a corrugated cardboard effect. Some paint was added to the heart for a shabby look finished off with a button.  To dress up the card a bit, a fussy seam binding bow with stick pin and paper rose was added above the vintage book print image. I completed the card with a sentiment cut into a waving banner.  Two tiny caramel pearls were added to each end of the sentiment banner. 

Inspiration for this card came from:
The Pink Elephant: Get Krafty: Use Kraft on your project
The Kraft Journal:Anything Goes

Thanks so much for stopping by!
