Vintage Card For Toni

I am giving Toni a vintage gift for her birthday, so it was fitting to do a card in a similar style. I have used French Foliage Stamp Set, En Francis Backgrround Stamp and Sincere Salutations for the greeting. I have used Early Espresso Inkpad for the main image stamping and Soft Suede for the background.
 The Ribbon is Early Espresso Striped Grossgrain and the lace ribbon is tied through Antique Brass Brads. Cardstock is Very Vanilla, Early Espresso and Crumb Cake. The most exciting thing about this card is the background behind the main leaf image. This was achieved by inking onto a clear block without a stamp and then stamping this block down to get a soft coloured block of colour. I used the Tea STain ink from our Distessing Essentials Kit to achieve this lovely soft colour.
