Kraft or crumb cake Vintage Vogue

Hi there, how are you all, looking forward to the weekend? guess what? is only around the corner again.
I am such a DODO as this post was supposed to be up there yesterday and it was only this morning I realised I added my dates wrong.
Oh well here's the card I am sharing today.
Now you know I adore Kraft card stock but what I cannot get use to is calling it Crumb Cake I guess it will take me a while.
I arrived to this combination by pure coincidence but I just LOVE IT. I was starting our with Bravo Burgundy, Pretty in Pink and Crumb Cake ( I wanted to type Kraft again). But on my desk I had some Taken with teal stamped flowers left from a card I made for a special downline of mine ( will show you her card tomorrow). And when I added it to my colours it just POP-ed. I liked it and I stuck with it. 
What do you think?
I have used the smaller DOT DOT DOT background and Craft ink in Whisper White to add the subtle background and a few elements from the Vintage Vogue stamp set stamped in either Bravo or Teal. 
The frame from Frames with a Flourish was the perfect size for my sentiment from the Sincere salutations set and Bravo grosgrain ribbon finished off my simple creation.
Hope you like it right I better get to work.
BTW if you purchased a catalogue from me it was posted on Tuesday, hope you have got in touch with your bank manager since.
Till next time Hugs xxx

Another lovely card Monica, and I just loved your comment about the new catalogue. The Australian catalogue came out on 1st September and my first wish list was about $600 and it took me ages to get it down to a 'reasonable' size. Yes, it's SU AA for me.
