Vintage for Phindy's Place

Our challenge to you this week at Phindy's Place is to create a card or other paper-crafted project with a VINTAGE LOOK.  Since I love creating in a vintage style, this challenge is right up my alley.

I have used one of Phindy's new basic stamps from the Two Seven Oh collection called Spools to create my vintage look.  The pattern cover front and back came from an online site that sells vintage patterns and the background is not paper but fabric from my stash.  The sentiment is one of Paulette's from Create with TLC.
