Vintage Flower

I thought I'd have a bit of a change and make something a little vintage, not my normal style at all really.


I have used a gorgeous image and papers from a kit by Studio Light that I found in my local Craft Shop, the pearls are from my stash.  There are quite few layers on this card and I have inked the edges of everything with Distress Ink.


I know it's not very vintage by some peoples standards but it is quite vintage for me.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Creative Fingers Challenge 87 - Anything Goes Simply Papercraft Challenge 8 - Anything Goes
Sister Act Card Challenge 114 - Always Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenge 110 - Distressing
Crafty Hazelnut's Patterned Paper July Challenge - Anything Goes with Patterned Paper

Thank you so much for visiting my blog today, your company is much appreciated.

I have a little giveaway HERE if you would like to take a look.

The distressed edges, the patterns and soft colors definitely make this a vintage design. It doesn't need to be overloaded with stuff to be vintage, at least that is my opinion. It's gorgeous!
