two vintage cards

I made these two vintage cards today. They use the Brocade DSP that is in the clearance section on my Stampin' Up! site. Very beautiful paper....I love vintage,so it's perfect....and a great deal ;)
 I used the new distressing tool kit from SU! too. I used the sanding block....which is what made the 'white' section show thru on the thank you card. Then I used the flat stamp and tea stained ink on the scallop for you card,which gives it that 'molted' old paper look!!! Hope you like them ;) I linked the words , for easy shopping! Let me know if you need help placing a order with me.....
Thanks for stopping by and have a great night! ;)
