Mojo Monday/Shabby Tea Room - Just Believe

Today's card share is an anniversary card that I created for two special people in my life, I used the Mojo Monday Sketch Challenge for the layout and found my inspiration from The Shabby Tea Room Challenge.
I used the stamp set Just Believe and accidentally smugged black ink along side the vanilla card stock on my image panel so I decided it needed more distressing with ink after that, lol.  By the time I was done my fingers were very inky :)
Supplies: Just Believe, Love Letter DSP, Vintage Wallpaper Impressions Folder, Chantilly Crochet Trim, Antique Brad, Beautiful Wings Embosslit die, Circle punch, Word Window punch, Modern Label punch, Brads, Scallop Trim border punch, Ribbon, White Craft ink, Dimensionals.  Colors: Basic Black, Crumb Cake, Very Vanilla, More Mustard.
This is the inspiration photo from The Shabby Tea Room Challenge, I was drawn to the black leaves in the two candle holders, the creamy colored candles and flowers for my card.

Thank you for stopping by!

This is absolutely GOR-JUS!! All of my favorite yummies from SU! - I {heart} those vintage brads!!! I think the antiquing you added 'by mistake' to the edges gives your design such a beautiful, vintage feel!! Thanks for sharing with us this week in the Tea Room :)
