More and Older is Better

The highlights of this card are a beautiful Graphic Print from The House on the Bay, an "antique" (?) button  engraved with flowers, and an "antique-looking" crushed velvet ribbon.  I used these items plus several more to create a card for this week at Sugar Creek Hollow for their theme More Is Better.
Our vintage, shabby chic or primitive cards should have lots of embellishments! I followed a sketch from Card Patterns which I turned on the side for my design. I made the focus of the card the graphic - Rose with a Border which I distressed the edge and aged with Distress Ink. I placed this on an embossed dark green mat,  added border of pink pattern with pink crushed ribbon and green satin ribbon. This I placed on a card base of Distressed Pink CS. I finished with Pink Rhinestones in a design about the roses, added pearls, and the button with flower design and a rhinestone center. Added the word "Love" embossed in gold.
