Getting Crafty

I love this little crafty set by PTI. It's called Studio Style. The sentiments are perfect for the way I feel most of the time. I have a love relationship with my stamps and this set expressed me all over.

For this card, I chose to make it vintage style. I had a scrap piece of this paper that looks like it's been stitched and from there, the card took off. The base is Baja Breeze (SU). The dsp was cut in 3 strips with some space in between them and placed on the base. I colored my little jar of buttons with various Copics. Isn't that little jar just the cutest thing?? After stamping the jar and sentiment in Basic Brown (SU) they were die cut and embossed with the accompanying larger scallop layer underneath them. I got some of this old lace from a vendor at a crop I recently attended and thought it's proportion went perfect with the paper and jar size. Cute tiny buttons I've had 4-evah were placed at the bottom of the sentiment. Inside it reads: "I thought we were just collecting them!" Such a cute stamp set. The edges of the card inside and out were smudged with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Love those inks, too! What do you think??
