Retro Inspiration #26

I had a free spot of time this Sunday, so I decided to make a card.  The creative ladies over @ Just us GirlS, have an inspiration photo that is right up my alley.  The ladies over @ Retro Sketches, have a great user-friendly sketch this week.  So, I combined the two!
Here is the inspirational photo from Just Us GirlS:

Here is the sketch from Retro Sketches:

And here is what I created:

My card base is kraft card stock.  Not very shocking, if you are a follower of mine.  I used pale blue pattern paper from Authentique and Lost & Found.  I stamped the sentiment in white craft ink and dusted it with Glacier White detail embossing powder.  I distressed the tiny polka dot pattern paper with kraft classic ink, and white craft ink.
This piece was made with a small music sheet piece.  I distressed the edges with kraft classic ink and white craft ink.  I wanted the dry embossed edge to be seen, and I also wanted to blur the edges.
I hand-cut a heart from some cream felted wool and stitched it down the center.  I made a tiny tag and added a vintage faucet button with a pearl center.  
For the ribbon, I used a piece of cream satin ribbon and cream crochet trim.  I thought it added a little softness to the card.
I hope you have time to play in these different challenges.
