A little bit of Vintage

Good morning,

I hope everyone had a great weekend, enjoying what's left of the sunshine. I think I'm finally starting to get over the nasty cold bug I've had all week - I'm working on the principal that 'things can only get better'!

It's time for our next challenge over at Make My Monday and this week Fliss has chosen our theme, which is another favourite of mine

(with Sepia, Cream and Pink or Blue)

Here's what I made for my DT inpsiration ...

I made an easel card using a cream card base and layered with soft pink co-ordinations cardstock, dreamy papers from Raspberry Road and a variety of embellishments, including a stamped postcard and lovely sepia vintage photo. The lamp post die cut  and the leaf swirl die cut were covered in cream/gold frantage powder to age them. The little flowers are handmade from book paper and are inked and also covered in shabby pink frantage powder to highlight them. I must admit, I had a 'step away from the card' moment - I always get carried away with the embellishments and this time was no exception!!

Here's a closer look at the base of the card, with some more handmade flowers and a lovely little cameo embellishment. 

If you have the time, why not pop over to the challenge blog and check out my teamies DT inspiration too. I shall look forward to visiting your blogs this week to see your interpretation of the theme.

Hugz, Jan xx
