City Crafter Challenge Week #97

Hello to all my blogging friends I hope this post finds you all well and happy!

As I said earlier I entered a couple challenges today. But, this is the first submission I have ever entered for The City Crafters Challenge Blog. I felt like going way out of my comfort zone and stepping away from the straight lines and CAS creations of where I have been playing as of late. I went with the aged look and feel of vintage. I really do down in my heart love texture and vintage cards. So to my regular readers I hope you like this.
This weeks Theme is All Natural.

Here are the challenge requirements and the link for the City Crafter Blog  http://citycrafter.blogspot.com/
Besides their traditional vintage appeal they asked that we use all natural colors, that means almost totally monochromatic. Both fairly new concepts for me but here goes.
This card was so fun to make; combining layers and lace, baubles and beads, silk flowers and even an antique postage stamp.  It's a love letter on a card.
Hope you like it.  Here is a look at the inside I tried to keep it very simple.
I thank you for stopping by and hope you too get a chance to create something fun today.
