Vogue VintageThank you

I've been wanting to try a card with this new set from the Occasions mini catalog. It is called Vintage Vogue. I found my inspiration from a similar card by Canadian demonstrator Marika LeMay.
I chose Cameo Coral for the base card and combined it with Chocolate Chip for the accent color.
The images were all stamped on Naturals White card stock. I inked the vine image with a Close to Cocoa marker and a Cameo Coral Marker. The panel was sponged all around the edges with Chocolate Chip ink and a Stampin' sponge. The main flower images were stamped with Cameo Coral ink. I cu them out leaving a white edge showing. The little leaves were stamped in Old Olive ink and cut out.
I used the Sizzix Bird w/Leaves die cut and some scraps of Old Olive card stock to create the swirls and leaves under the flowers. A colored button creates the flower's center.
I repeated the vine pattern along the left edge of a Naturals White card on the inside to provide an area for a personal note.
I was pleased with the finished card. Don't you think the sponging softens the look of this card?
