Flourishes February Sneak, Day Two

So, what did you think of Hello Hyacinth yesterday? Gorgeous, right?! Well, we've got an equally gorgeous set to show you today:

Totally different and so very vintage--right up my alley!!

I stamped the largest image on Classic White card stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink and colored it with Copic markers. Then I went all distressed with it ;-) My patterned papers are from 7 Gypsies' Venice collection and my card base is Classic Ivory card stock. I edge distressed all of the paper (except the image panel) and then ink distressed them, as well, with Antique Linen Distress Ink. A little vintage seam binding and a twine-tied button finished it off.
