Virtual vintage !
Today is the start of my month long Guest design team position with Pile it On.
And what a lovely challenge to start off with - this week the lovely team want to see your romantic and fussy projects.
So snuggle up to your loved one and see what it inspires you to create !
I found this adoreable image at All things paper while browsing the internet one afternoon and just knew that I wanted to use it for this card. It is actually a scan of an old postcard from a grandmother - which for me makes it even more special.
I printed it onto matt card and distressed the edges with my Tim holtz distressing tool then inked up the edges too - I was trying to make it look authentic.
I also took inspiration from this beautiful little purse over at the XS Baggage and co which is the sponsored store at Etsy inspired challenge this week.
I made my flower with my spellbinders dahlia nesties and spritzed them with water before scrunching them up then I inked them a little before layering up. Finally I fastened them together with a pearl brad.
The DP's are from the 7 gypsies victoria paper pack - these are so gorgeous that most of the work is done for you - I never want to cover them up !
I do hope you like my card and that you will join in with us at Pile It On this week x
