Heartfelt Creations Vintage Inspiration

I hope that each one of you has had a wonderful joyful week. I spent a good part of my day Sunday in my craft room. There was a vintage air around me while I crafted. This card is spectacular in real life. The Antiquity Paper Collection at Heartfelt Creations is awesome and the Beautiful Juliet precut stamp set is  spectacular all I needed was to close my eyes and trace back in time to my Grandmothers attic and a card was born.

 I mimicked the designs and tones in the Antiquity Paper through out my card. I hope you enjoy it.
