Vintage, lace and sort of distressing

Happy Wednesday everyone! The middle of summer and somehow I have managed to catch a cold. Just special that way I guess! I did manage to make up a card on Sunday though and am entering it into the Mo's digital pencil challenge which is vintage, lace and distressing. Well, I am real happy with lace cause I LOVE lace, I have hoarding problems with it, etc etc but the vintage and distressing well...



My "attempt" at vintage and distressing is to use softer colors than I normally do and I added distress ink in vintage photo to all of the edges. Her apron looks a little bright in this picture but it does match the soft rose pink in the papers better irl. I have added some prima epoxy dots at the bottom, a little decoration from my new silhouette behind the sentiment and some brown ribbon on the side. Hope you guys like the new format on my blog. Gotta change it up every once in awhile ya know!
