Over at A.R.T. - a random Thursday card challenge, this week the Challenge is a "Color Combo" of dusty colours which I thought called for a vintage-y type card.  I'm not sure that I captured the exact colours, but this is as close as I could get!  So, I started with papers from Kaisercraft's Sweet Nothings paper pad, and layered them onto brown cardstock and backed that with a peachy dusty pink cardstock.  I wrapped  the right hand side with a wide dusty pink lace, then with cream cotton lace which I threaded with dusty pink ribbon.  I stamped the elegant lady (from Stamp In Style) with Memento ink onto blending card, die cut it with Spellbinders Labels 4 and coloured with copics.  I layered this onto brown cardstock die cut with Spellbinders Gold Labels 4 and added it to the card front with foam tape.  Then I stamped the sentiment (from Stampin" Up! Vintage Labels) with brown ink, coloured the background with copic E40, and die cut it with a Spellbinders Classic Oval die and layered it onto brown cardstock cut with the next size oval die and added it with foam tape.

Copic Colours used were:  E40, E000, E01, E50, Y21, Y26, R000, R01, R20, R32, C5, C7.
