Vintage Flower Fairy

My friend Natalie (Sequin) from the Crafts Beautiful forum had sent me a gorgeous RAK (of which I'll post here shortly) which included this piece of Papermania Blueberry Hill paper and Flower Fairy Topper. I’ve changed the look of the paper by making it look old - I used an brown ink pad all around it, then rubbed my nail file over it to try and make it look old. When I first started adding the ink I thought “Oh my god it’s gonna look awful”. I added some pink glitter to the roses as well. I also added clear glitter to the fairy topper, on her wings, the rose and dress edge. I then added some rustic eyelets to the four corners - I’m hoping I’ve got a vintage look to this card.
