Gosh I was soooo late getting this card ready for todays challenge over on C.R.A.F.T challenge blog, as I also had my sons birthday card to make for his 8th Birthday today!! I was up until silly O'Clock this morning...
This weeks challenge is a really lovely sketch to work with.
I think I must be going through an experimental stage as again this one is not my "usual style". Oh well, they say variety is the spice of life! I wanted to create a soft looking vintage card and am quite pleased how it turned out - BUT arrrgh my photos are so rubbish again as it looks more orangey than in real life!!
Backing papers are Basic Grey, the top one I stamped with a swirl using Versacolor in Mocha Truffle. The large sparkly love heart I covered a piece of chipboard in glitter paper and then cut it out freehand. Small hearts, lace and buttons are from my stash. The brooch is what my husband brought back from India. Flowers are a mixture of prima and silk flowers from an arrangement at a local garden centre which I dismantled.
