Embellish vintage color- Moxie style

I wanted to incorporate the Embellish challenge with some Moxie fab paper pleating. Seemed to be a good match, right? I will be honest- yellow is a challenge for me! But I stuck with it & rather like the outcome.

I had just received the terracotta tile cardstock. Also- that PTI border die is new- just right for vintage, no? I bought that book last summer for the express purpose of crafting with it- and it still gave me great pain to tear a page out! The copyright is 1907. The back is broken, but still....

I used my giga guidelines in SU! really rust on top of the pleated bookprint & added some SU! old olive for a little more aging & green tie in. The seam binding is hand dyed (by me!). I've had that yellow hydrangea bloom in my stash for quite some time. Pretty sure it's from Michaels, but not sure on the manufacturer.
(I replaced 2 of the pics- but this one is still a night shot- YOW.)
Head over to Moxie fab & Embellish to see what everyone else has done! I'm also adding this one to Betsy Veldman's vintage challenge- I'd say a book that old qualifies!! :)
Thanks so much for stopping by- I'd love to hear your thoughts (besides buy a light tent- this I already know!) :)
