Vintage?!

Happy Friday peeps and I hope you have a good day despite the dreadful weather forecast. 

I know I said yesterday that I don't "do" vintage, well I've decided to have a go so that I can participate in one or two Vintage type challenges...so here goes






I used a shaped card and covered it in a sheet from my Almanac pad (forgotten how pretty this pad was). The stamp was by Marianne -  one that I have used a couple of times, I raided the die box and used one from the SB timeless rectangles set as a frame, a tag (of unknown origin!!) through which I threaded crochet ribbon, a freebie butterfly die and a doily which was cut from another piece of paper from the same pad. I finished off the butterfly with  some gems. It seems an awful lot to put on a card (for me!!), however, I am really quite pleased with the result.

I am joining in with these challenges

Divas by Design - Vintage with lace

  29. This vintage card is gorgeous! I love that look but vintage isn't always easy to pull off but you surely didn't have a problem with it. That black butterfly gives it just the right amount of 'pop'... it's a perfect card!
