Sweet Stamps Challenge #60 Vintage/Shabby Chic

Today is our sixtieth challenge on the Sweet Stamps Challenge blog.
This week the challenge is VINTAGE/SHABBY CHIC!!!

Anyone can enter, but if you use a Sweet Stamps rubber stamp you get two entries into the challenge for a chance to win a $20 shopping spree!!

 Sweet Stamps have some great Antique People and I chose Dapper Dan.  He is stamped in French Roast Shades Dye Ink on Cryogen Paper and colored with Copics.  The shape of card was die cut with Cheery Lynn's Coved Rectangle XL Stackers.  I used sizes 1,2,4 and 5 for the card which measures approximately 4.50" x 6.25".  Using Three Stripes Border from Sweet Stamps new release and French Roast Shades Dye Ink, I created a background on cardstock.  Happy Birthday Antique was stamped in the same Shades Ink.  The brads are from my stash.  The DP is Timepiece 6x6 paper pad from Bo Bunny.

Copics Used:
E000, E00,
E35, E37, E40, E99, W3
