Thinking of You- "I'm Not Old, I'm Vintage" :-)

Hi Again Stampers! 
Again, if you have not had a chance to visit the above sites, I hope you will find the time to do so- they have excellent Design Teams as well as gallery entries!!
To create this card:
Using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink, stamp the image onto Whisper White cardstock, color using Stampin’ Write Markers (Blackberry Bliss, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz) and add a few white highlights with the White Gel Pen.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Oval Frame Collection Framelits™ to cut out the image as well as another frame from Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  Cut the Blackberry Bliss frame in half, adhere behind the image and distress with the Distressing Tool. 
Use a Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink to “antique” paper.
Use the Big Shot™ with the Lovely Lace Textured Impressions™ Embossing Folder to emboss a piece of retired Etcetera Designer Series Paper.
 Distress the edges using the Distressing Tool and a Sponge Dauber with Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink, add additional ink onto the embossing as well. 
Mount the panel onto a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock, distress the edges with the Distressing Tool and adhere to the Whisper White card base. 
Use a Sponge Dauber to add Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink over the Whisper White card base edges (to “antique” the paper).
Trim a piece of Crumb Cake cardstock and emboss with the retired Lacy Brocade Embossing Folder.  Distress the edges using the Distressing Tool and adhere to a piece of Blackberry Bliss cardstock.  Distress the edges of the Blackberry Bliss with the Distressing Tool and sponge Baked Brown Sugar Classic Ink over the edges to add a bit more distressing :-)
Add a bit of lace to the embossed panel along with a strip of ⅜” Pear Pizzazz Seam Binding.  Mount the panel onto the card front.
Stamp the sentiment using Memento™ Tuxedo Black Ink and stamp onto Whisper White cardstock.  Add the banner using the Hexagon Punch and mount onto Blackberry Bliss cardstock, again, adding the banner points using the Hexagon Punch. Adhere the sentiment over the image and mount the focal image to the card front using Stampin’ Dimensionals®.
 Add the rolled flowers (created with the 2 ½” and 1 ¾” Scallop Circle Punches from Blackberry Bliss cardstock along with leaves using the Bird Builder Punch from Pear Pizzazz cardstock) to the card front (I used Hot Glue to adhere the flowers to the card).
Add the Pearls to the corners of the sentiment and background to finish off the card.
