Papercraft Star Challenge 62

Over at the Papercraft Star, challenge 62 "Anything Goes" open today!  I love this challenge because all you creative crafters come out to play!  For my project I created a card.  I went back to my comfort zone and stuck to a vintage look to this card.  I used Baja Breeze as my cardstock base and paired it with a patterned paper from TPC.  I stamped an image from Verve directly on to the Vintage Frame from our sponsor, the House Across the Bay.  Because you can print these sheets from your own printer, I printed this one on to a natural cardstock to give it even more of a vintage look.  I then added lace from my stash and made a bow from some trim also from my ever growing stash.  The little flower was made from a sizzix die, which I adhered a pear to the center.  I edge punched the patterned paper with a Martha Stewart punch and added a flourish from Prima.  How perfect did the vintage frame image go with this paper line!  I love it when a card comes together!  I would love to see what you come up with for this "anything goes" challenge.  You have until Monday by 6:00 a.m. Eastern!
