Vintage Inspired Card - Cheery Lynn Designs & Nicecrane Designs

Its been a busy time in the creating department of late.  I was asked to be a Guest Designer for Nicecrane Designs, and thought it would be nice to combine the gorgeous images, with the beautiful dies available through Cheery Lynn Designs.  
The image is called 'Woman, Vintage, Fashion #1', and can be found 'HERE'.  You can also see the Blog, 'HERE' for more inspiration.

The base of my card is built on the Mini Pearl French Flair Mega Doily Series, then topped with the French Pastry Doily. The corners of the Mini Pearl French Flair have been covered using the Lace Corner Deco E, which I cut slightly for a perfect fit.
A close up of the Woman, Vintage, Fashion #1 image
The flower cluster was created using the Miniature, Medium and Large Rose - bending each petal into shape to form the rose.  I added a few little stamens into the middle for a more realistic appearance.  Leaves from the Build A Flower #2 were used beneath the rose, as well as the Flourish Leaf Strip.  The small flowers from the Build A Flower Embellishment #2 were adhered, and seed beads added to the centres of each flower to complete the arrangement.
The challenge over on the Cheery Lynn Designs Challenge Blog this week is Halloween, so pop on over and see all the DT creations, and perhaps enter yourself.  You have a chance of winning a fantastic prize!

Till next week
