Simply Create Too Challenge 21 - So Old / Vintage

Time for another Simply Create Too Challenge!  The theme this fortnight is:

So Old / Vintage

I've used this wonderful steampunk inspired topper from Cardmaker's Delights, layered it onto papers from Pink Paislee - Family Matters, which I've lightly distressed the edges of the papers and then added some faux stitching.

The buttons and twine are also from my stash.

Good luck with the challenge!  For more details, pop over to the challenge blog.

Crafting For All Seasons:  Stitching
Paper Shelter:  Layers on Layers

Stamp and Create:  Stitch It Up
Tammy Scrappin' Corner:  Lots of Layers
