MFW TT: Vintage Vagabond

Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger this week is:
Vintage Vagabond
This Week's Tuesday Trigger
Inspiration? Came from the striped carpet, patterns, colors, that touch of burnished gold, the cage, the angles of the photo, phew! Is that enough? If not, how about the word, 'vintage'.  
Out came a paper pad from My Mind's Eye called Traveler.
My card was built on a rather quilted pattern paper, which was not quite patterned enough, hence the added distressed stripes from a PTI stampset.
See the wooden cages? Reminded me of a Kaisercraft wooden dressform I had.
Added a reddish print paper behind it.
Lots of fun elements, such as the patina strip sent through my Cuttlebug with a folder that looked like the patterns on the plates. Cork tag with a sentiment from PTI's Embellishments stampset.
The 'You' and 'Inspire Me' are stamped in gold and then black ink.
Found objects in my stash, including this old button (it is, afterall, a"vintage" vagabond" challenge)
Angled the finished piece on black cardstock, and angled it a bit again on Kraft Cardstock from PTI.
This one was not in my comfort range, and took me awhile to interpret. But Cath doesn't miss with these Trigger photos. They're apparently meant to 'challenge!'
Vintage Vagabond runs through the 23rd if you'd like to join the fun! 
Discover your inner 'Vagabond', and play along!
