A Vintage Card -- for DigiStamps4Joy

It's time for some mid-challenge inspiration at DigiStamps4Joy.  The challenge theme is Vintage.  I don't often make vintage cards, so I thought long and hard about this before I started.  Once I got going, I had a great time. I used the Floral Letter digi stamp to create my vintage card.
Here's what I came up with:

I colored the digi stamp image with Copic markers on the flowers.  For the envelope, I swiped it with Tim Holtz distress ink in Old Paper. Then, I fussy cut it.  The Frills easel card is a cutting file from My Scrap Chick. The digi stamp is mounted on a lace flower I created using 3 Girl JAM lace from the new Light & Bright bundle.
I hope you enjoyed my vintage card for challenge #88.  Make something yourself, and come link up with us! You have until April 2, when another challenge starts.
