PPA80 - Vintage Theme

Happy Saturday!
When I received the SCS Weekly Inkling on Wednesday and saw the 'Quilt' tutorial, I thought it was so neat and definitely wanted to try it. Then, on Thursday, came the new PPA challenge, which is a vintage theme this week. I thought the 'quilt' would be perfect for the 'Those were the days' PPA challenge.
Creating 'vintage' is new to me and I finally used my distressing tool. The 'quilt' was quite easy to create.
Supplies used: Basic Black, Riding Hood Red, and Very Vanilla card stock, Country Living Holiday (retired) and Love Letter DSP, Tagger's Dozen and Too Terrific Tags stamp sets (both retired), and self-adhesive pearls.
You probably cannot tell from the photo, but I spritzed the Very Vanilla layer, the black tag, and the black circle with alcohol/Champagne shimmer paint.
I really like how this card turned out and already plan to make another one when my Bliss set arrives.
Happy crafting!

WOW! Lisa, was für eine wunderschöne Karte! Der Quilt ist dir ganz fantastisch gelungen und die Farbauswahl ist genial!
Die Rosette und der Tag sind noch der Touch auf der Karte!
