Vintage Challenge

I made this card for the late night stampers vintage challenge. We were to make a card looking vintage using all current Stampin' Up product.  I love the vellum inside the scallop frame and the way the flowers turned out from the Birds & Bloom sizzlits dies.  I also sponged a little champaign mist shimmer paint onto the vellum to give a little dazzle along with the half pearls from the Pretties kit.  
STAMPS:  Vintage Labels, Embrace Life, Well Scripted
ACCESSORIES:  Birds & Bloom Sizzlits Dies, Champaign Mist Shimmer Paint,  Pretties Kit, Oval Scallop Frame Die
CARD-STOCK:  Mellow Moss, Ruby Red, Vellum Paper
