Vintage Goodness

Betsy Veldman uses a lot of vintage goodies in her creations.  She has a challenge going on right now to use something vintage in a creation.  Of course, vintage is my thing, so I couldn't resist participating! I used a vintage image, book page, and buttons.  I found this darling book at an estate sale awhile back. 
 It's large:  about 9 1/2 x 13".  So I scanned in the image I wanted to use and reduced it.
  I know it's way early for spring, but I like to think ahead.
  I used an old children's book page to create the rose. 
The papers are from My Minds Eye and the cardstock and the embossing die used on it are from Papertrey Ink.   I used a Martha Stewart punch to create the fence...continuing the idea from the image.  I had a little green seam binding ribbon left (got to find time to dye some more!), just the color I wanted.  I also used the sketch from Mojo Monday  - it really caught my eye. 
 Love the set up. 
I just have to show you another of my birthday presents.  My daughter, Lauren,  knitted a pig for me.  Isn't he cute? 
He has the sweetest face and the cutest curly-Q tail. 
Thanks for stopping by!
