Vintage look

This card uses Mojo Monday sketch 483, which allowed me to use lots of snippets from a very old set of papers that still appeal to me. I followed the sketch pretty faithfully, just dropping the bow and adding a flower.  The sentiment is from Rubbernecker.  All the panels aside from the circles are outlined with paper piercing.
The ribbon is an ivory-colored crocheted lace. The flower looked to be made of muslin or a similar cotton, and I "dyed" it by using a SU Lavender Lace marker and wetting the flower with a watercolor brush. I just played with it until I got a look I liked.

This card is for these challenges:
Mojo Monday -- sketch 483
Double D -- lavender and lace
The Ribbon Girl -- any card
Pixie's Snippet Playground #267-- use snippets
Word Art Wednesday #268
