Vintage love card

This card won the faux stitching challenge on Sunflowers and Dragonflies blog- thanks!!
This card in French vintage style was made for Sketches: creatively yours DT challenge and also for Practical scrappers Guest design team I was asked to do for 2 weeks and this week their challenge was " Embossing"
I used AC texured cardstock and did some sand paper distressing and brown inking.
Then I used inkes MM vintage finding ppaper, the next layer was die cut (Spellbinders) fabric with faux white pen stitches and the emcossed one was again MM same pack paper with inking.
The fleur de lis Cutllebug embosser is me new " toy" and MM paper too.
The fleur de lis brown chipboard was cut by me from free digi image on the web and was dressed with clear crackle Ranger paint and then I added some mists, paints etc- just to get this vintage old look.
The pearl brad was painted with alcohol ink too.
