Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Vintage/Shabby Chic

It's Tamara's turn to choose the theme of the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week, which is:

'Vintage/Shabby Chic'

We are sponsored for this challenge by:

The prize is a $15 voucher for Heather's Hobbie Haven!

Vintage is not really my thing...but I found these old BasicGrey 'Figgy Puddings' papers in my stash, and thought they'd fit the bill. I embossed the plain one using my Sizzix/BasicGrey 'Snowglobe' folder...lightly sanding over the surface. The big bauble and letters are from the same BasicGrey paper pack, and the seam binding ribbon is from the Ribbon Girls. I inked around all of the edges using 'Pumice Stone' Distress Ink, and added a few adhesive pearls.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
