I have seen so many vintage cards that I admire so much. This started out to be vintage, but I think the result is more shabby chic. If you have any special techniques for vintage cards, feel free to include a link. This clock is from a set called Nostalgique, by EK Success - a set I have had a long time but rarely use. The sentiment is Whiff of Joy. I have no books I want to cut up, so I used a book review pamphlet. The Argyle embossing is on DCWV metallic cs, and the die cuts are Nesties and Lavalier Circle from Memory Box. I am not sure what to call the small strip - it is from a box of scraps I acquired at a store closing. It is almost like a thin hand made paper with embedded bits of fiber, and provided a perfect embellishment for this card.
