Shabby and Vintage

I must admit I believe shabby and vintage is my favorite type of cards and tags to make.  Why?  I don't really know except I like the look and feel...
This card I made this evening I will be putting in two challenges, Word Art Wednesday  Challenge #104 Anything Goes. And also over at House of Cards Month Four: Shabby and Vintage. 
I began by folding a 11 1/2 x 8 1/2 sheet of pale yellow card stock. I then layered a green piece of card stock, and  topped that with white card stock. My top layers are from The Paper Studio from the paper stack called Mirabelle.. 

I cut and distressed the edges with my scissors, the color was like a pale rust.  The next layer,  I layered horizontal was a deeper rust,  I would call a rust red. Again distressing with scissors.I kept layering, finishing off with a flag cut freehand with the deeper red rust color.

I had a lace flower I had made and distressed with Tim Holtz distress ink Vintage Photo, I added a onyx type button from LeBouton, and a stick pin I made of different gem beads. Used the hot glue gun to add on.
To add a little extra bling I added some half pearls in white.

Thanks for looking.. xoxo Patti
