Vintage Wedding Card

What a lovely day today has been quite warm and sunny.....hopefully signs of things to come. My grandson has had us on a hunt today he was playing with the vacumn cleaner whilst I was cleaning the kitchen and managed to hide the pipe off the end of the cleaner in a blink of an eye.....I checked the cleaner and couldn't see it so we checked every where else to no avail....a real puzzle it was only after hubby came home and joined in the hunt that he discovered it on the cleaner after all... he'd managed to get it inside the other pipe so we couldn't see it.The little tinker......
Today my mojo had gone walkabout so I started making a tag and it kind evolved into a card, I'd brought a grapic 5 sheet of images....never used them before but I quite liked the vintage romantic images I used one of the small images and put it in a crushed bottle top....these make great embellishments. I went to a local health shop and they sold them 50 for £1.25......cheap as chips. I put glossy accents on the top of the image, the music stamp is from Crafty Individuals and is stamped on tissue paper.The heart doiley was distressed with .....yes you guessed it Victorian velvet and brushed corduroy as was the tag and then I rubbed stickles rock candy over the top, flowers from Wild Orchid.......the flowers from there are gorgeous.

Challenges entered are:
Everybody Art.....sketch.
Pollycraft....sparkly things, flowers have been glimmer misted and the diamond sticles added, crystal embellishments,
Crafty Angels....Hearts and lace.
Our creative cnr.....use the colours, yellow,pink,green and brown.
Fab n Funky....wedding.
