Love Grows

Hello all my crafting friends,
At Lili's Little Fairies we have another challenge for you, and our theme this week is
Thank you to our lovely sponsor this week:-
Vintage/shabby chic is definitely a style that is way out of my comfort zone, so my card is about as vintaged and shabbyised (I think I have invented a new word) as I will ever do.
I used the darling LOTV stamp, Love Grows. This one has been around for a fair while, but is still popular, and hasn't lost any of its appeal. I sponged all the edges with Versacolour Umber, then used my Tim Holtz distressing tool on all the edges. I also sponged the greeting tags and twine with the Umber.
I have coloured Love Grows with Promarkers, and used what I felt were vintage colours.
Inside my card matches the front.
