[DYSU] Challenge #49 - Something Old

Good morning, dear blog world! Is anyone else feeling the holiday crunch? I haven't mailed out a single Christmas card and am wondering if I have missed the deadline for them to receive them on time ;) I haven't started my holiday baking, or my home-made little something treat...I have guests visiting for a little more than a week, maybe I can put them to work ... Ines & Meik if you are reading this, I am kidding!

Anyways, here is a non-holiday card to fit our Something Old theme, and it's not wedding-ish, although I did contemplate making something with the "something new, something old, something borrowed" theme.

My card has an image from Saturated Canary and is just a fun little card for any occasion.

Stamps: (Zorana the Gypsy Dancer) Saturated Canary; (Gertie "Girly") My Mind's Eye
Paper: (Paper Basics Card Stock - Royal Velvet) Papertrey Ink; (Wisteria) Basic Grey
Ink: (Tim Holtz Distress Inks - Antique Linen) Ranger; (Brilliance - Moonlight White) Tsukineko
Embellishments: (Soft-core Color Pencils) Prismacolor; (Lace Pack - White) American Crafts; (Stickles - Xmas Red) Ranger

Some of the "old" elements that I was going for was: pattern paper that I have been hoarding in my stash, like the Wisteria line from Basic Grey. I also sponged some distress ink along the edges on the Gypsy girl with some Antique Linen to give it that old vintage feel. Lastly, I thought doilies and lace are great "vintage" elements and decided to stamp off the background with some small doilies I have in my stash. It's quite lovely, isn't it?

Since this digi is quite lovely, here is a up close look on the image. I decided to give this little gypsy a red-brown mane. I thought it made her look a little more fiery! The little heart on her dress actually has some red Stickles, but it is hard to tell in this picture.
