CropStop's Vintage, Shabby Chic Challenge

This week's challenge on the CropStop Challenge Blog is to create something distressed, vintage, or shabby chic!  The new Basic Grey "Kissing Booth" Valentine Paper Collection was perfect for this challenge.
I used two of the papers from the collection...Heart Breaker and Pucker Up!  The Pucker Up is embossed with the Cuttlebug Heart Block embossing folder.  The double mat is pink and burgundy Bazzill and the edges are inked with Tsukineko's Memento Rich Cocoa Brown.  Love that ink!  The entire card is misted with Tsukineko's Sparkle Shimmerz Mist.

And who can resist a doily on their project?  I love that doilies are front and center in the crafting world now.  A doily speaks vintage! I scored these mini doilies last spring after the Easter holiday and have been waiting for an opportunity to use one.  They came in a package of pink and yellow.  The pop of yellow worked for me!

The heart is BossKut's Victorian Heart die cut.  I bought this a few year's back and it is one of my all time favorite dies.  I matted the pink heart with burgundy to show off the flourish cut from the heart.  The stamp is from Close To My Heart's, "Mad About You" set and the ribbon is from our local American Ribbon Factory!
