A Vintage Card

Hope everyone's having a great weekend. I made this card for Altenew's September's the inspiration for the card
I love the gold and crimson color combo Tasnim has used on her cards. Vintage Flowers is the only Altenew stampset I have and I love it (many more are on the way once my husband gets back from the US next week).
I stamped 2 layers of the vintage roses with distress inks, worn lipstick and picked raspberry, on watercolor paper. I went over the stamped roses with a waterbrush to blend the colors, once they were completely dry I added the final layer with Galaxy Gold Memento ink which I heat embossed with Zing  Gold Glitter Embossing powder. I did the same with the sentiment which is by WPlus9. Added some gold gelatos over the entire background to give it a vintage look.
This card was extremely difficult to photograph, it does look much better IRL. I usually use my iphone for photographing my cards, for this card I had to use my DSLR and I still couldn't get a very good shot :(
