Vintage Flowers - Friday Mashup

Vintage seems really popular right now - or so it seems.  This is the third card where I have used the vintage approach.
The challenge with the Friday Mashup here is to create a card with vintage flowers, or a card with vintage flowers and a vintage feel.  So, you guessed it, I made a card with vintage flowers and a vintage feel.  Here's my card:

Vintage Flower 1:  5 Petal Flower punch - one in pink pirouette and one in very vanilla plus a Boho blossom.  All edges sponged with Soft suede and the petals curled. Dazzling diamonds and crystal effects in middle.  Old Olive leaves hand cut.

Vintage Flower2: 2 3/8" scallop circle punch of Marina Mist card stock.. Cut in narrow strips from outside edge in a circle to the middle.  Sponge all edges .  Then with a pair of forceps curl from outer edge to the middle forming a rosette.

Vintage Flower 3: Punch 3 of the largest flowers of the Boho blossom punch.  Distress each piece until you are able to peel each piece into 2 layers.  Then spritz lightly with water and  crumple each piece.  Straighen, insert a brad in the middle, and bring each layer up over the brad.  Then loosen the flower until you have the shape you want.

Vintage Flower 4  Using flower die from Birds & Flowers (retired), cut 3 of them in a pale pink and make into a rose.  Leaves were hand cut.
