Vintagey layout

Hello Friends!! Yesterday I decied to get out of my comfort zone and challenged myself to make a vintagey layout. It's the first time I made a layout and also anything vintagey (Although I had tried once..but failed).. So would request you to put on your critic caps and help me improve :)
Supplies: CS : Local, PP - Paper Mania, Distress inks - Vintage photo, Peeled paint, Stamps - Hero arts Blossom Art, Glitter balls - Pie lane, Slickles - Stickles - Diamond, Punch - Martha Stewart double arches


And here's the close up-




I am submitting it to following challenges -
Pretty Paper Studio challenge 2 - No Photo layout
For the love of crafting challenge 4- Blooming gorgeousness
CraftyJC Challenge #15 – Many Colours Holi!
As it was the first time, I decided to go for a smaller layout  - 8 x 8 inches. And like some of my previous posts..I loved playing with distress inks..:)
Well that's not all..I also organized my distress inks and blending foams this weekend. And here's the picture -


You can get the distress ink labels at - http://www.rangerink.com/pdf/label_sheets/DistressInkLabels.pdf
I printed 2 sheets. One went on distress inks and other on my blending tags. I have stuck a piece of velcro to paper tag using a piece of "buckram"..not sure if it is the right word..but it is a drier sheet kind of material used by tailors to stick fabrics. When inserted between fabrics and ironed it sticks the fabrics together. I stuck it using fevicol on tag and then stuck the velcro on it followed by ironing on reverse. The bond is quite strong. I have tested removing and putting the blending foam multiple times. Hope you find this tip useful!

Hugs,
Piyu
