Vintage Charm

Hi peeps! I am so happy to share this card. I had bought this pretty stamp set from Kavitha's store long back and couldn't get to use the Eiffel Tower. I have tried to create a vintage look for this card and you know what, I actually used "vintage" paper for this.
The crumpled paper on top and bottom is from an old Diary from the year 1996. I actually love collecting diaries. I tore it randomly and crumpled and inked the edges to get this look. 
The PP in the middle is from vintage queen Mallika, sent for a PP swap.
I have stamped other elements from the stamp set and cut them to use as embellishments, like the postal stamp on top and the round Paris stamp.
 These are the same flowers I used in my card here. These are made by me using 5 petal punch. The tutorial to make these roses is here. Also see here my tutorial for making the leaves used in the card. I have made them out of old price tags.
 A close-up of the stamp and the charm...The metal charm is from an old friendship band.
I have used this sketch from ICR and flipped it to make my card.
