August WMS blog hop

The Waltzingmouse Stamps blog hop theme is Vintage/Shabby Chic.
Apart for the sentiment (Hero Arts), all the stamps I used are from Waltzingmouse Stamps.

I distressed the background with Scattered Straw and Tea Dye Distress Inks.
The cardstock is from Gina K, the Swiss dots ribbon is from Papertrey (ripe avocado).

Stamps: Pic nic patterns, Vintage Labels 2, Roses in bloom (Waltzingmouse Stamps). Sentiment: Friends (Hero Arts).

Inks: Scattered straw, tea dye (Distress Ink), Straw (Vivid), Spanish moss (Versafine), pear tart (Memento)

Accessories: Ek success border punch, ribbon (ripe avocado - Papertrey), copic markers.
