Vintage Friendship Card

I just absolutely adore “Vintage” ....anything Vintage, so creating something in this theme just flows for me, so easily....
The hardest part, after many years of collecting vintage images was deciding on which one I would use!!

I’m so delighted to be able to enter this card into a couple of challenges:
 Totally Papercrafts Blog – Week 52 “Vintage” 

and the PaperPlay Challenge Week 46 - "Shaped Card" challenge
All worth check out, with some gorgeous DT examples!

The products I used in this card are:
Prima “bling”
Tim Holtz Distress Ink – “Victorian Velvet”
Sheer Ribbon, Guipure Laces (hand-dyed by myself), and fancy ribbon – many years old and I have no idea of brands...

Well I hope everyone has a totally wonderful weekend, beautiful weather here at the moment...and I am going to be spending some time finishing off a few pretty projects I've been working on for my DT at Megs Garden!!  Gosh, her products fit so much into "Vintage" and if you have not checked out the website, you can find it "here".  Also, don't forget the blog, which is "here"....
From now till the new year, Meg is offering 2 free transperancies with each order that is placed.  Transparencies are so much fun, as I have recently been playing/learning all about them in my DT pack ....

Okay, off to create, while peace reins in the house ...and as I speak those words, I hear Jesse garble-gooking in his cot!! LOL
