Fabulous Fifties Fashion Ladies

Hi Gals,
I have another vintage feel card today. I used stamps of lovely Fifties era ladies from Art Impressions and Auntie Amy's Embossing Arts. I used the Sketch from Friday Sketcher's Blog. I changed it slightly. I put my flowers on the opposite side and shifted the rectangle up higher on the card.

I followed the color scheme of Chocolate, Teal, and White. I stamped the images in Chocolate Chip (SU) ink on white CS. I distressed the pieces with Broken Dishes (Ranger) and layered with Taken With Teal CS (SU). I watercolored the images with Taken With Teal ink. The card base is a textured brown CS from AC Card stock. The DP is from ATD. For accents I used polka dot ribbon, Mulberry paper flowers from Prima, a scallop circle punched from DCWV DP,a flower from a Sizzix die, and some gems.

Check out the detail shots.
