Vintage ?!

It's time for another challenge over at paper crafting journey and this fortnight we would like to see your vintage creations.

This week we are sponsored by Elizabeth Bell who treated each of the the DT to an image to use. This is my very first Elizabeth Bell digi and I am hooked - yes I want more !! You can check out all the fabulous digi's at the store here.

Firstly let me tell you that I struggle with "vintage" - I love it but it is just not my own style and so it does not come naturally to me !
While I am very happy with my card I cannot tell you if it is "vintage" or not ! How so ever it is my take on vintage so that will have to do !

I coloured that beautiful image with my prisma's and die cut it with my circle nestie and layered it onto a picot edge circle (also spellbinders).

My DP's are from my Kaisercraft sweet nothings paper pad - and I done a little bit of hand stitching on the scalloped border to add a little more detail. The layers are wrapped with chiffon ribbon and embroidery thread and tied with a bow - I love the subtlety of chiffon ribbon especially paired with the silky sheen of the embroidery thread. I topped the bow with a button/gem combo.

That beautiful flower is from a Websters pages kit and I just added a little bit if ink so it looked more worn or vintage ! Then added some of my favorite Zva pearl swirls.

Hope you like it - I had such fun making it. Don't forget to check out all the DT inspiration over at the PCJ blog and get all the other details for the challenge.
