Vintage Elements of Style - The Friday Mashup #46

"I'm not old, just vintage"  Sounds like they were talking about me - but I jest.
This is my card for the Friday Mashup challenge here

Here is the challenge:



My card:

The stamp  from the Elements of Style stamp set was watercolored, but very lightly to give the appearance that the color had faded. The Whisper White Cardstock was then torn and crumpled and lightly sponged with Crumb Cake ink.  The Marina Mist matting was also distressed.
The card base is Baja Breeze, with a Whisper White layer texturized with the Perfect Details texturz plate - and then lightly sponged with Crumb Cake ink.
The image was deliberately mounted "crooked" - as if the glue had worn away.
The embellishments in the corner were made with the butterfly punch - the punchie embossed with the square lattice embossing folder , then crumpled and sponged with Crumb Cake ink.   The ribbon flower was made by pulling a piece of thread tightly.  It was attached to the butterfly with a glue dot.

The photo corner punch was also sponged and crumpled.

Here is the recipe:
Stamps: Elements of Style, Friendly Phrases
Inks: Black Stazon, SU markers, Crumb Cake, Soft Suede
Papers: Baja Breeze, Whisper White, Pear Pizzazz
Accessories: Butterfly punch, Photo corner punch, 1 3/4 by 7/8" oval punch, Victoria Crochet trim, Square lattice embossing folder, Perfect Details Texturz Plate

Very pretty card, I love the extra details you put into it, with the light watercoloring and turning of the middle piece. The flowers in the 2 corners looks fantastic.

Thanks so much for playing along with us at The Friday Mashup!
