In The Good Old Times

Today the challenge at Sweet Stamps is  an Olden Day/Vintage theme .
I used this great punch/ embossing die to make this background it is one of the many available at Sweet Stamps I suggest you check them out while looking at the wonderful stamps.

That Antique Dancing Couple 547 image of the couple was stamped on a piece of design paper and cut out and pieced to a second image that I colored with Copics- you know how I love to paper piece?

I used an edge punch to frame the card and added a few pearls to accent this  clean and simple card.
Here is a second view of the details.
Hope you pop over to Sweet Stamps and join our challenge this week- did you know there is a $20.00 gift certificate for the store given each week?
Oh my goodness I forgot about entering challenges this week.
Here are a few I would love to play along with:
