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. 

Stamps: Vintage Vogue, Simple Friendship, Dreams du Jour
Inks: Soft Suede, Pink Pirouette, Marina Mist, Old Olive
Papers: Pink Pirouette, Very Vanilla, Crumb Cake, Marina|Mist, Bashful blue
Accessories: Vintage Wallpaper embossing folder, Eyelet Border Punch, Victoria Crochet Trim, 1/8" white taffeta trim (colored with Crumb Cake Marker), Vintage Brad, metallic brad, Pearls, Crystal Effects and Dazzling diamonds, 1 3/4 X 7/8" oval punch,
