Stamping 411 challenge - Vintage Birthday

Hi!  I discovered a new papercraft challenge website, Stamping 411.  This week's challenge is sketch challenge #134.. I love it!

I wanted to try out a vintage look for my card, and what better stamp set to use than the new Vintage Vogue.  The Well Scripted stamp set works wonderfully with this look as well!  Here's my card:

To create my vintage look, I started out Very Vanilla cardstock, stamping the images in Chocolate Chip, Bravo Burgundy, and Old Olive.  I first sponged around, starting off the paper and going around with Creamy Caramel, then Soft Suede.  I just kept sponging until I was satisfied with it!  :)  The embossed piece was also "distressed".  I love how different the cardstock looks.. doesn't really look like Very Vanilla anymore, does it?

Check out Stamping 411 and play along!  There are some fabulous creations there to see as well.
