Vintage!

Hi lovelies! Hope you're all happy? 
I made this card last night and have gone completely out of my comfort zone, I was inspired to have a go at this by the beautiful card I received from Shelley Mimi Bo for the Cards Galore aug card swap! 
I started with 8x8 cream scalloped edge card base, created a background using Grunge polka dot background stamp from http://www.visibleimage.co.uk/ in vintage photo DI, then embossed and inked using spun sugar and tumbled glass DI, added pink lace border, the paper is from a 6x6 Vintagey pad can't remember the make sorry, I've had it ages! I inked the edges with vintage photo DI, the stamp is one of those foam ones from QVC had it years, never used it, stamped with vintage photo DI coloured with spectrum noir's then inked with tumbled glass DI, cut and embossed with spellbinder nestie and inked the very edges with vintage photo DI, I have to admit, I usually make my own flowers but these were so pretty in the shop they jumped into my basket and I didn't have the heart to put them back lol that's my excuse anyway! the roses I just added a touch of raspberry ink to them, added a pink feather and swirly pearls, I'm not sure I like the image? It seems a bit ott for my liking, but I like the rest of it, what do you think I'd love some constructive comments. Thank you for looking xxx I'm entering this card into http://www.vintageelusionscardscrafts.blogspot.co.uk/

This is gorgeous Zoe, I love the flowers and the stamping on the backing. I think the topper does work well with the rest of your card as it compliments the embellishments you have used.

Hi Zoe - saw your comment on Sarn's site so thought I would check your blog out. I am on my way to look at the Twinchies Challenge but I always get sidetracked - which I love anyway!!!!!

Your card is sooooo pretty and I love how delicate it looks. I haven't been blogging for long and I am amazed at the talent there is out there. Love your tag as well - I will be back (not said in an Arnie voice of course). You have a great blog.

Pop by and see me if you have a minute.

Hugs Sue P xxx
