1ST ATTEMPT!

This is my first attempt at a vintage style card.  I must admit that they always look so wonderful when you see others enteries. 

I found this technique very difficult and took me 3 days just to find suitable papers and colours!

Not sure I have the knack yet but think I'll probably give it another try!

If you like this stamp - please take a look at the other fabulous stamps available at Kreativ Hobby everything from modern to vintage.




Techniques:

Papers:
Main Pattern - digital - Stitchy Bear stamps
Other pattern papers used - all digi
Plain cardstock - Crafters Companion.


Dies used:
Butterflies and tag - Marianne Collection
Spellbinders - for frame

Punches:
Circle punch for centre of flower
Embellishments:
Clear gems
Pearl
Best wishes,

Gorgeous, you'll soon feel comfortable. I've done a couple recently and really fell in love with this style. Trying not to do them each time so as not to bore peeps, but I am itching to do another, lol. Thanks for joining us at Bearly Mine. Hugs Tracy x

A beautiful vintage card, however, the challenge at Sentimental Sundays this week is Go Green, which requires the colour Green, or Recycling, plus a sentiment.
