inky impressions challenge use something old

hello everyone! it's time for another inky impressions challenge!  this weeks theme is "use something old"  i love to use old things in my cards, the more vintage and shabby chic the better! :) here's my card for this week.

for my something old i used vintage buttons from my button collection, lace, and colored my stamped image in sepia tones.  the stamp that i used is MarLeigha's Ornament Dance which is probably one of my favorite's from inky impressions!  i found some 7 gypsy's sugar plum paper from my local stamping store and HAD to use it for this card.  i made a swooping pocket for the card instead of a regular criss cross card, which i thought it made it look even more unique and vintage.  i added  lot's of pearl swirls and all sorts of embellies from silk ribbon roses, cameos, flat backed pearls, large vintage-y paper flowers.

here's a close up of my image.  i LOVE the way it turned out. :)
