Aged Vintage Couple

This is for today's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE #263 - Very Vintage. I bought this stamp last year and it has no name on it so I don't know where it came from but I love it. My layout is from Saturday's JUST US GIRLS SKETCH CHALLENGE # 23. My image was stamped in espresso ink then colored with copics. I distressed the edge of the circle shape then sponged with creamy caramel, close to cocoa and choc chip. My dp is Basic Gray's Indian Summer. The primas were colored with copics and topped with a button tied with gold cord for Thursday's STAMPIN' B'S CHALLENGE # 48 - Flowers & Button and all the flowers on the dp plus the primas also fit the CUPCAKE CRAFT CHALLENGE # 81 - Flower Power. Now off to work I go.

Paper: Brown, Vanilla, Basic Gray - Indian Summer
