Vintage wedding shower

I didn't have anything else to post so I am hoping my daughter doesn't check out my blog, her first wedding shower is coming up and her wedding colors are brown and green, so I started off with Gina K brown cardstock, this stuff is thick!  I used my scorpal to add some scorelines to the bottom.  Daisy D paper is used behind the Melissa Francis Vintage cutouts image. I layered that on more of the same cardstock.


For the top I wanted to go for a layered lace feel, so I used 3 different Martha Stewart edge punches. These strips were ones I had left over from making her wedding invites :)  The sentiment tag is a Fiskar stamp, the green was a little too bright yet so I sponged some brown over it to age it a bit, looks better in person I think. The Rose pin I found at $ store and I added a clear bead to the bottom so she doesn't get poked.  I am very happy with the results of this card, hope she likes it even though I don't think she is much into vintage, I'll have to do some thing a little different for her other shower.

Thanks so much for stopping by and taking the time to comment,
Connie

Such a beautiful card, Connie. LOVE the three punched borders. Wonderful idea, too, about putting a bead on the end of the pin!
