I Love IndigoBlu - Challenge "Vintage" Card

I received an invite to take part in the "I Love IndigBlu" challenge on a theme of "Vintage".  When I actually looked at my IndigoBlu stash, I found I actually only have 5 IndigoBlu products, so perhaps that needs addressing.

For this card, I used a piece of 12x12 double sided patterned paper.  I added the dotty side to a tag and then dragged blue and pink inks lightly over the surface.  Using the IndigoBlu "English Flourish" stamp I added the flourish image in a dark red ink.  I used the same ink for the edges of the tag too.  I added a red paper ribbon and a section of lace to the base of the tag.

I then added a piece of patterned paper to the blank card and inked the edges and added some foxing marks to give an aged look.

For the topper, I used the IndigoBlu "Flutterby" stamp in the same red ink, I added extra colouring by using a gold and a lilac metallic pen.  I then cut it out.

Finally I mounted the butterfly onto a topper base using the same patterned paper.  I used a double height of foam pads to make the wings appear lifted.

Here's a photo of the two stamp sets used in this challenge:
