Digital Pencil's Challenge #90 - Vintage with Distress & Lace

Challenge link:

Here is my entry for Digital Pencil's "Vintage" challenge. I love this sweet little image, "Home Tweet Home".

NOTE:  The pale yellow lace around the focal image used to belong to my grandmother around 25 years ago. After she passed away about 9 years ago, a whole bunch of lace packs that she still put together made their way to me. I've been stashing them away for sentiment sake and can now happily use them. I know she would have loved it.

I slightly distressed the edges of the white card base with Antique Linen (Tim Holtz) and wiped over the focal image as well with a foam applicator.
The designer paper is from Prima paperpack, "Reflections".
Brown base layer: Bazzil
The image is from Mo Manning's Digital Pencil, of course, and can be found <HERE>
