Soft shades of vintage



I saw the challenge Soft shades of vintage on Die Cut Dreams this week and decided to make a card for it. The Dp on this card is from Dovecraft Eastern Promise which you can get from Donna Den here don't forget she is closing down and everthing has 30% off. I afraid the photo really doesn't do the paper justice but this is the best I could get, its a lovely soft green colour and there is soft pink on the flowers. The border is cut from a woodware borde punch and the spotty ribbon is from crafty ribbons. The pins were in my stash from Rainmac this month.


The Tilda image was stamped and sent to me by a friend sorry I can't remember which of you lovely ladies sent it to me. I have as usual coloured her with promarkers and mounted her onto an oval cut from another sheet of paper fromn the same pack.

I have made this flower from some more of the paper cut into scolloped circles with my nesties then I have cut every 4 or 5 scollops to make petal shapes, then I scrunched the paper the make it look shabby. The pearl brad in the centre is from my stash and the metal part is partof another brad that I took apart.
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

What a beautiful card. The papers and colours are gorgeous and I LOVE the flower. How clever to make it from Nesties, it's really effective - I've got no excuse not to have a go now as I've got a set of the scalloped circles!
