Kathy's Something Old Challenge

I made this card for Kathy's challenge to use something old, and this card fits the bill.  The rose stamp is one I picked up at a garage sale some years ago.  It is actually one of my favorite rose stamps but has no manufacturer on it.  I paired it up with a Hero Arts word stamp that I thought was so fitting of the card.  Now for real old, the rivets used to attach wording to the card front are a gift I received when I first started stamping some years ago as are the corner brads used on the rose image.  The background was created using CHF linen inked in Colorbox sky blue and dune inks.  I did have to cheat and use my new Copic Markers to color the rose.  Still a newbie with these markers so forgive any imperfections!
