Vintage Style

It's time for another challenge at The Card Concept.
Today's challenge is: Vintage Style
Everyone is welcome to play along using the colors, the theme, 
textures, items, or just anything from the picture as your starting point.
I was inspired by the bird and flowers when I created this mixed media card.

This card also doubles as my entry for the Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps April IG Hop.  If you'd like to enter the drawing for a $25 gift card to SnSS - visit my Instagram page and click on this card for further instructions.

I've included three of my favorite things on this cheery spring card --- texture, layers, and birds!! The main image was stamped in waterproof ink and colored with Arteza brush pens. To make the shiplap a little softer, I sponged picket fence distress stain over it before die cutting. I used one of my pink watercolor makers to add the pink highlights after I glued it to my card front.
