Layers of Color Vintage Roses meets MMSC60

Hello everyone!  Today I have a card I made for the Midnight Madness Challenge this week, using Layers of Color Vintage Roses Art Stamp Set.  I love this set and thought the arch of flowers would be perfect for the arch element of the sketch.  My base is Bazzill and the dp is Websters Pages and SEI.  I used my  new CB EF and sponged all my layers with Adirondak Latte Ink.  The images are stamped with Archival Sepia and water colored with inks.  I used an MS punch and lace from Websters and K&Co.  The arched element is hand embossed on a light box using a Marianne template from Terryfic Times.

I am entering this in the following challenges:

All Sorts- embossing I used dry embossing)
Papertake Weekly-stitching

Practical Scrappers- border punches
 Challenge Up Your Life - Vintage

I have my Grandkids to pick up and we'll have a fun weekend!  I hope you all have wonderful weekend plans as well!  Be blessed!
