Stampin Sister's in Christ #40 and Mojo Monday

I have never done a vintage look before but this was fun and I also used the Mojo Monday challenge for my design.  I used an emery board on the DSP to distress it and tore the white and then inked it with Close to Cocoa.   The gold on the chocolate chip around the verse was actually an accident.   The paper under something I was trying and then I thought it looked good, so I inked it all in gold with my Vintage Vogue stamp.   Thanks for putting out these challenges - it is helpful to make new cards.

This is a great vintage card. You should definitely do more of these - your have an eye for it! I like the touches of pink here and there.
