Vintage Chic Thanks - DS74

New goodies arrived yesterday, and I couldn't wait to dig in to Heidi Swapp's Vintage Chic 8x8 pad -- talk about gorgeous! And this week's Deconstructed Sketch (#74) was perfect for the card I had in mind. In fact, so perfect it's going into my go-to sketch book pronto. Here it is:

For the main oval panel, I started with a Spellbinders Fancy Tags Three die-cut. On top of that is a Verve Mini Bookplate die-cut that I stamped with a heart image (light aqua ink) and a sentiment, both from Verve's With Love set. I embellished with some white paper flowers from my stash and some May Arts ivory string. Inking, distressing, stitching, and buttons complete the overall vintage look.
