Snowed in, so I'm stamping

We woke up to 4 or 5 inches of snow and a layer of ice. Where I live, that's a snow day for sure. Looks like tomorrow will be another one. Happily, I found a little time to stamp.

This card is a three-fer. The basic design is this week's Card Positioning System sketch (CPS200). The colors come from this week's Off the Wall Challenge (OTWC40). As you can see from the inspiration photo (right), the colors are tan, white and burgundy.

Finally, the vintage French inspiration for the card is from this week's Etsy Inspired store (EIC121), La Pomme, which specializes in vintage French items. I was inspired by all the wonderful vintage French ephemera, including this sheet music.

The image is from Lost Coast, stamped in maroon Colorbox Chalk ink. The darker tan layer is embossed in French Script and sanded to give it a more aged, vintage look. I also incorporated some maroon ribbon and flowers into the card.
