Vintage CAS

Usually when I think of "vintage" I'm picturing lots of floral embellishments, flourishes, laces, ribbons, pearls etc. In short - "BUSY" cards :D. I DO like the look of vintage but struggle with all the bits as I'm more comfortable with CAS or something related to it. So I started playing today with some vintage looking stamps from Marianne Design (CS0857) but kept it clean & simple.
I stamped my "DP" with some images of the set in Memento Desert Sand, London Fog and of course Tuxedo Black. I love the combination of beige / creams with the starker accent of black.

The sentiment & flourishes are from Papertrey Ink (Think Big Favorites #12 and Spiral Bouquet - See
