Vintage Farm Happiness: Card

I actually was able to photograph this card during the daylight! Yeah!  Love it.  But, that also means that I wasn't able to complete my chores.  {frown}  Well, there is always tomorrow.  {smile}
I saw the sketch over @ Mojo Monday earlier this week.  And all I can say, is wow!  I will be using this sketch for several paper crafts I have on my 'to do' list.  
Here is the current sketch 

So when I saw this sketch, I thought blossoms in place of the stars.  
But, I didn't do that.  Here is what I created:


Ok, this is another small A6 size card: 4 1/4" x 6".    I just love this 'new-to-me' size card.  The card base is made from Ocean Tides card stock.  I added a matt of kraft card stock by Paper Studio.  The pattern paper is another digital download.  I did a single border machine stitching around the main panel. 
I added a strip of white cotton eyelet trim, then a scrap of mint macaroon lace trim (by Stampin' Up!) and cream twill ribbon (by Paper Trey Ink).
My focal piece is another digital pattern paper from the same collection as the larger piece.  I did another kraft card stock matt.  I did a single border machine stitch, but only on the bottom half of this piece.
I added a vintage price tag, and a vintage mini milk cap.  The vintage scale was hand-stamped from the A Second Helping of Sunshine stamp set, by Paper Trey Ink.  The sentiment is from Close to my Heart: Country Born stamp set.
I also added a Tim Holtz safety pin to the bow, and created a tag from the packaging of the 'helping of sunshine' stamp set.  I used a sentiment from the Friendship Jar stamp set, by Paper Trey Ink.  
I added a very vanilla card stock panel with a kraft card stock for the inside.  I also re-stamped the vintage scale on the lower right corner.

Thank you for looking.  I hope you have been inspired to create something beautiful!  Now I'm off to start my chores.  {frown}  And then I'll have a few evenings this week, to continue crafting! {smile}
