Tuscan Vineyard.....La Dolce Vita.....

Hello everyone: When I saw the Tuscan Vineyard on the new catalog I literally gasped, I fell in love with it immediately, I counted the days until I could get my hands on it and ink it up.
So here is a card I made with it that I will link up to several challenges, the list is at the end of this post.

All the images have a beautiful vintage feel, I just love the sketchy look on all of them.
I stamped all three of this images onto a piece of Ninah Solar White card stock with Versafine black ink and colored them with my Prismacolor pencils, I added a bit of gold gel pen to the seal at the bottom. The pattern paper on the background is from Lili of the Valley (retired line) and the piece going across is from my stash. I added this tiny, tiny keys I found at an antique store last week, the lady at this booth had a 75% off sale so I literally grabbed ALL OF THEM, 35 total for about $10.00
There are several adorable designs on this keys.
Here is a close up of them.


They could belong to an old cabinet full of old, dusty wine bottles, don't you agree? 
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


The sentiment is from a retired Flourishes set called Dreaming of Florence and the line of corks from the Tuscan Vineyard. 

I would like to enter this card onto the following challenges.

Hugs from Maria.
