Vintage Card Time!

Good evening everyone!  I hope everyone had a great weekend!  I've spent a LOT of time crafting... it's been lovely!  =D  I have one card to share with you tonight, with several more coming this week!  Tonight's card is one with a vintage feel designed for three challenges that I really love participating in!  Here's the card:

This one took quite a bit of work.  Awhile ago, one of my favorite bloggers, Lisa Petrella, shared a card that she made by distressing a ribbon.  I had a really great orange ribbon that I wanted to use for this card, but I needed it to fit my color scheme!  So, I used this as the perfect opportunity to try out this technique!  Although it was messy, it turned out REALLY perfect!  I was also really excited to use this new stamp that I recently bought from D'Amour Allure using the AMAZING giftcard that I won from McMahon 5 Designs! 

I also distressed the entire card, and added a hand-written sentiment to add to that vintage-y feel!  Here are the challenges I'm submitting this for:
1. Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge #76
2. Embellish Color/Vintage Challenge
3. City Crafter Challenge Blog 27 - Create a Vintage-Themed Card Inspired by this picture: 
I thought my colors matched this picture very well! =) 

Well, this is all that I have for you!  I hope you all have a wonderful week!
