The Vine - Take 2

Being the guest designer for Melanie Muenchinger's newest stamp set designed for GinaK Designs called The Vine has been such fun. I am thrilled to have her showcase another project of mine using this wonderful set on her blog, Hands, Head and Heart and here I am showing another card that I made. 

This card was me just playing around! I dug out some old stuff (vellum and some of GinaK Designs digital paper called Vintage Basics and one of Melanie's others sets that coordinates perfectly with The Vine called Branching Out. The only "new" used on this set is The Vine stamp set!
I stamped the vine on the digital paper with Memento Brown just kind of randomly. Then I distressed the vellum with a sponge and the Memento Brown. I wanted a little bit of a different look so I used a scallop die on the vellum which shows off some of the vine. I stamped the sentiment in a stamp from Branching Out and cut it out very carefully. Stamped and cut some of the flowers out of some DP paper I had and popped it up. A few pearls colored in red and some ribbon that I have no earthly idea where I got it. Looks nice though doesn't it?

I really like what you did with the vellum I didn't even realize that's what it was when you sent the first pic, just thought you'd really stamped off the vine a bunch LOL! That looks terrific with the scallop cut out sponged and the oval popped up! Love the details and layers , terrific projects again this week!
