OSW: Shabby Grandmom

Here's the first card I made from my stamped One Sheet Wonder:

I thought I'd use this first post to talk a little about the things I did to create my paper. I started by masking my roses so that my stamped leaves would be layered behind them. Once I had placed all my roses, leaves and flowers, I added a bit of sponging in Moss ink. Looks rather gray in my scan here, but in real life it's soft and green. Oh well! Finally, I added some scripty text to the background in Sand colored ink.

With the filigree background I stamped for this card, I thought it would be just right to give it to my husband's grandmother for her birthday. It makes me think of something sweet from the "good 'ol days."
