PDCC77, FTL136 - A Muse|Studio Vintage Labels/Dies

Today's card uses some of my FAVORITE new products from A Muse Studio!!  The Vintage Labels Stamp set coupled with the matching Labels dies!!  What makes them so special is the way that you use the included clear pieces to cut them out - want to see what I mean - click here!
I figure that if I'm cutting out one label I should stamp and cut out three - that way I have two in my stash for those super quick/easy cards you need in a hurry!!
Chose my colors from the Play Date Cafe Challenge.  My favorite colors are green and brown so this challenge just screamed out to me!!
Layout is courtesy of Clean and Simple Stamping's FTL136.  The A Muse|Studio swallow die replaced the button element on the sketch.  Look closely and you'll see that there are actually two swallows - I covered the first one with glitter and it got a bit too sparkly for me so I cut another one and layered it on top so just a teeny bit of the glimmer shows.
Gorgeous satin ribbon adds to the lovely layers of green!!  All supplies are from A Muse|Studio -  Stamp Sets - Vintage Labels, Good Fortune; Diecuts - Labels set, Swallows; Ink - Fern, French Roast; Diamond Glitter; Ribbon - Lichen; Cardstock - Sage, Latte Woodgrain, Fern, Grass Gingham, Kraft.
