Going vintage

Happy Friday morning all. Another week almost done and dusted, and the weekend to look forward to. Yesterday I went and had some therapy.... retail that is....went to our local craft show, met up with a blogging friend Tertia and had a lovely morning. I was very good and got most of what was on my shopping list and only a few extra things, but enjoyed looking and chatting to several friends not seen for a while.
Now to my card. This was made for a new challenge on PCP...All things vintage....Not very good at vintage so decided to give it a go. and this is what I came up with, following the sketch that Lyn gave us.

Used a cream cardstock and matted DP paper by Kaisercraft.. The roses collection. Just loved this paper range, need to see if they have any more at my local supplier.
For the centre panel, 2 strips of lace, again a strip of the same range DP, Cut some flourishes with a Marianne creatables die and the centre "diamond" from summer shimmer card with a Joy cutting and embossing die, just slightly inking the embossed rose on the cut out and stamped a sentiment.

Finished it off with a layered flower, ribbon and some pearls.
Also decorated the inside, with the same paper, a bit of lace, pearls, and cutout with the Nestability ..labels 14....
Was quite happy with it, now for the next one.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, until next time take care.

I also decorated the

Must admit, vinyage is not really me. I think its the muted colours that does not appeal to me. Your card is lovely.

Lovely Ursula!
I am also working on the vintage look - it does not come easy to me, but will persevere!
Love your colours and the diamond die is super!
Enjoy the weekend!

Your card is lovely Ursula! Must admit that I really love creating vintage and if I could it would be all I'd ever make! Alas, I have to broaden my scope :) Love the flower, it's beautiful
