Vintage card....

Aternoon peeps didn't get a chance to post over the weekend but I've managed two postings  in one day......bit like buses....lol. Todays card is a birthday card for a special someone, can't say who, as she might just see it, this card evolved from me playing with my new martha stewart punch, I wanted to see if it worked.....as if it wouldn't but you know what I mean, so the first part was the lattice background in green and then I used gold dabber paint from Ranger over the lace part, which I threaded with ribbon, added an image from Crafty Individuals which I edged in German scarp, I rubbed black acrylic paint on it to give it a more aged look, the acrylic fragment was made with a piece of paper from the Lost and Found paper pad and stamped with a minature music stamp.....so sweet. I added a little metal rose. The background of the tag was distressed with Dusty Concord, bundled sage and Victorian Velvet over a mask and then spritzed with glimmer mist.


Background of tag

The flowers were made from the the round confetti pieces from Craft works

Daniele, this is truly gorgeous! You captured "vintage chic" perfectly, and the soft colors, sweet embellishments and that beautiful image are wonderful together. I love how you used the fragment charm on this piece-- that's a very clever design. As always, you've completely rocked the CCC!
