Vintage birthday

I was going for a vintage/ mixed media looking card today. When I found this mixed media paper pack at Michael's I decided to pick it up, even though I have more paper than I could possibly need, for one thing it was one sale and I loved almost all the papers in the pack.

I stamped the old postcard first and added some distress inks in old paper to give it that aged look, then stamped this collage stamp from hampton art and added a little pink color to it to tie it in with the papers.



Washi tape was added to the top and bottom of the card and I also stamped the sentiment onto the postcard, and who doesn't like gems :)

Stampendous -- Carte Postale stamp
Stamps of life -- Postmarks2stamp
Hampton Art -- sorry no name, colored w/markers
Recollections -- Mixed Media paper
Paper Studio -- Bird's cage washi tape
Spellbinders --A2 Matting basicsA die
Gems

Thanks so much for stopping by today and letting me know you have :)

You tied everything together just perfectly on this, Connie! I could almost think the postcard and flower collage were part of the paper pack. Colors are a beautiful match, and the Washi tape is ideal!
