It never occurred to me to sponge over embossed images to antique them, but it is a really neat look. Emily and I were also grateful that this was a quick and easy challenge! lol
I kept my design pretty simple. I used some of the pattern paper included in the Regency Era collection along with Sweet Blush cardstock. Soft, pretty colors. I placed an Ocean Tides circle behind my antiqued gold frame for the sentiment.
