Shabby Tradition

A Thanksgiving card for the following challenges:








I had this tag lying around for about a week trying to figure out what to do with it.  VOILA!  Here it is!  I painted it with Dylusions paint, stamped the image in Vintage Sepia and inked the edges in the same.  The flower I had put together for another project but didn't like it with it so I had it sitting there staring at me too!  I liked the sketch at Sketchbook Saturday challenge os in keeping with it, I fixed the tag to another tag.   I added the green tulle for more shabby chicness and painted the doily in the same Dylusions colors and glimmer mist and affixed behind the tag.

The background paper is a green/brown DP I have had forever and can't even remember who it is by (forgot to check before I cut it up).  I dry embossed it with a leaf emboss folder to give some more depth to the card.

I went back and forth with two different sentiment stickers.  The other one said "memories" and was a more white background with brown letters and a green border.  It was a little more vintage, but I just liked the balance of the green on here.
