TIOT - Vintage Style

Hi Friends~

I hope you are all having a fantastic week...this is my last week of classes before finals next week!  Eeekkk!  Thank goodness I really only have one hard final and the rest shouldn't been to terrible; however I do have a major presentation coming up...hopefully this time I don't stop speaking in the middle of a sentence and freeze! lol!

This week Suzanne has challenged used to create a Vintage Theme card....think browns, sepia, warm grays, and black colors.  I decided to go with the Sepia theme for my card! 
My Mother-in-law absolutely loves horses so when I first saw At the Horse Show I couldn't wait to make a card for my MIL!  This stamp is one of the brand new ones over at SCACD and is from Sampler Edition #4 by Elisabeth Bell for SCACD.  Dp is from the DCWV Once Upon a Time collection.  Heart doily has been spritzed with glimmer mist.
This cutie was colored with my Copics and accented with white gel pen.  I've added Chocolate Spica to her hair and Ice White Pearl pen was used for her buttons.
Large flower is a Gardenia and others are Prima Hydrangeas and mini rose.  Flowers have been glitterized with Diamond Stickles and then I have added customized pearls to the Hydrangeas with my Viva Decor Cream Pearl Pen!
Sentiment is from a SU set and the pearls have again been made with my Viva Decor Cream Pearl pen!  It's so nice to be able to make pearls the exact size that you need them to be!
