Creative Embellishments Challenge

Hi Friends,
I hope you like my vintage & romantic card inspired by the mood board below.  My card is entered in the Creative Embellishments August Challenge.
I took inspiration from the couple walking in the rain but used a vintage image and created a worn and weathered background with splashes of raindrops.  The sentiment says "Listen to the rhythm of the falling rain."  The embossed broach was detailed with metallic silver and finished off the card perfectly.

This card is also entered in the Simon Says Stamps Monday Challenge. This weeks theme is "Fall & Autumn" The warm browns of the brickwork worked perfectly with a sprinkling of tiny yellow flowers.  Also, this card is entered in the Artistic Stamper August Challenge and the Simon Says Stamps Wednesday Challenge "Anything Goes"
Finally, this card is entered in the Lost Coast Portal Challenge. This challenge is to include architectural element as the focal point such as a building, windows, doors, column, statues, or brick. Challenge #59 "Hard as Stone"

Such a lovely card, Karen! I love elegant antique mood in this card and the two couple look awesome. Your little embelishment really does well as a vintage focal point. Thank you so much for joining us at Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge.
