A Mystery Paper Card

While going through
my stash of papers, I found a couple sheets that I had bought when I first started making cards. I can't imagine why I hadn't used them up to this point, as they're gorgeous and go perfect with Kraft cardstock as a base. The only problem I'm having, is that I made two 5.5" square cards, put what was left in my scrap box and now I don't know what the paper was or even who made it. Well, anyhow, here is the first...

I sponged Vintage Photo
Distress Ink onto the paper edges and added two Prima Say It In Crystals to the top right corner.

This floral applique
was cut from an old doily. I topped it with these brown Prima leaves and a shabby rose from Frog Feathers on Etsy. That's another Prima crystal in the center. I gave the fabric leaves and rose a misting of Lindy's Stamp Gang Cactus Gold Glitz Spritz.

I cut these tickets
with the Tim Holtz Alterations Mini Tickets Set using paper from My Mind's Eye Breeze 6x6 Designer Paper Pad and that other "mystery" paper. I applied some Vintage Photo onto this Prima Shabby Chic Treasures bird, sprayed it with the CG Glitz Spritz then heat set it. The lace is from my stash and the Brown Organza Rose Trim came from Lauras Vintage Garden on Etsy. It too, was sprayed with the CGGS.
Will show you the 
second "mystery" paper card later on.

Thanks for stopping by today!
