Vintage Arch Tag

Hi Girls,
I'm going vintage again! Just love it and can't help myself. I have a vintage project today that stresses distressing. LOL. I used an arch template to cut the tag. I stamped and stamped on it and then rubbed it with gold Perfect Pearls. I used two different stamps under the Lady stamp. I layered CS and lots of lace. I added s0me hardware and pearls. Take a look.
Materials List:
Stamps: Medallion and Crosshatch - Stampin' Up (all on the tag in subtle colors to add to the distressed feel.) Music Collage - Hampton Arts
DP: Music - Hot Off The Press
Dye Inks: Chocolate Chip - SU Distress Inks - Ranger
Pigment Inks: Cajun Craze and Almost Artichoke - SU
Edge Punch: Martha Stewart
Perfect Pearls: gold
Black Chantilly Lace
Pink Lace
I did lots of detail shots in an effort to capture the sparkle of the Perfect Peals. I hope you can see the shimmer.
