Merry Monday#217 Winter Post Card




I went vintage and this is the first set that pooped in my head.  
It is a retired SU! set called Winter Post and I love it!
I started with the Post Card stamped in Soft Suede
 and the post mark stamped in Crumb Cake.
I stamped the script from By The Tide. 
 If you read closely it is talking of pink sea shells! 
I then sponged the edges in Soft Suede and used a distressed tool
on the edges. I stamped the couple in Cherry Cobbler.
I mated it to look a little like a frame picture. 
I also used some retired card stock-naturals vanilla.  
I only have a few pieces left of it but miss it and the naturals white, too!
I hope you can play along with the challenge over at
