Vintage Lady

Hi!  I'm showing you a different type of folded card that I discovered here at "A perfect waste of time."
I was immediately attracted to its vintage look, so I knew I had to try it.
I used the digital image above (I haven't a clue where I got it!), as I couldn't find a digi to color with my Copics that I liked better than this one.  :) 

To open the card, just untie the bow, and the card opens to reveal a hidden corner pocket
that has an affixed tag on which to write your sentiment.
It also has a distressed tag with a bow tied onto it in the pocket.
Card Recipe:

Size: 5 1/4" square.

Image:  unknown.

Stamps:  Kaiser Flouishes.

Patterned Papers:  My Mind's Eye, 29th Street Market:  Peaceful "Treasure" and Prima Botanical Garden:  "Sweet Heart."

Distressing:  Ranger Ink:  Linen and Milled Lavender.

Embellishments:    White half pearls colored with Copics V15, Bo Bunny dimensional stickers:  Butterfly, Sheer and silk ribbon, Flowers, Leaves, and Fern.  Stickles.

Tools:  MS around the corner punch:  Eyelet Lace.  Fiskars Edge punch and embosser:  Elegant Fountain.  Punch bunch: Fern.  Fiskars corner punch:  Lace.  EK Success flowers and leaf punch (borrowed from a friend and I forgot to write down it's name.)

Thank you for stopping by to take a peak at my card!  Have a blessed day.
