one of the cards from my last stamp class

I hold a monthly class at the Port Ewen Library .  This card here was created using the vintage vogue stamp set and I think it is a beauty.  The card stock was blushing bride, soft suede and very vanilla.  If you look closely, you’ll see I sponged the edges with soft suede and off set the card stock to give it a grungy look. Not too sure if I succeeded.  What do you think?
