Vintage With Lace

On Sunday it rained and snowed on and off all day, so I went upstairs to make my latest card for Diva's By Design.  Today we follow the theme of;

Vintage with Lace

Not a particular favourite of mine, but as it was a DT card I had to get on with it!  Firstly I had the problem of an image.  Initially I was going to use an old photo, but in the end I went with a digi from Free Vintage Digital Stamps - think the name there says it all, and if any of you haven't checked them out I urge you to do so as they have some super images.

So, onto my card...


The colours haven't photographed too well, but I think you get the general idea! Papers are Bo Bunny Avenue Collection then the card is finished with Hobbyhouse pearls and gems, some lace and punched leaves.

Sponsoring us this time are the fabulous Live & Love Crafts, with our lucky winner getting?
