Time to Stamp

This is a card that I made for the sketch challenge on 2 Sketches 4 You.
I found this one to really be a challenge. It took me more time than I care to admit. I usually don't do vintage, but I wanted to work with this stamp set that had never seen ink ( see how many I have!)
I went searching through my stash of dp and found this old paper from SU. I'm not sure what it is called, maybe Time Worn? I then got out some old SU in colors, True Thyme and Cranberry Crisp, as as Tim Gunn would say. "make it work, make it work". and worked it I did.
I hope that you like my attempt at a vintage look.
Thanks for checking in with me today.
I have some packing to do...leaving for the cruise in a few days!
