House Mouse Vintage

This card is for House Mouse challenge #75. I used my Prisma pencils but couldn't find my blending stubs. So I had to color it and not blend. I made the crocheted flower and put a hat pin in it. Oh to have Great Grandma Rosie's button jar and old hat pins! I could slap myself for not keeping them. Who would have thought??? I distressed the edges of the paper with distress ink (vintage photo). I used a dp on the background that looked like an old newspaper.
