Vintage card


SECOND POST FOR TODAY. PLEASE SCROLL DOWN FOR FIRST POST AND SCROLL UP FOR CANDY, CLOSING NEXT WEEKEND.

Firstly welcome to my lovely new followers. I hope I have managed the vintage look I was trying for with this card. The image is from the Greeting Farm, papers are BG and Papermania Heather. I inked and distressed all the edges. The lace was white so I soaked it in cold tea to give it a more vintage look. The strip of green flowery ribbon on the left was the size label from a top I bought today and the wine ribbon was from the inside of another top. Flowers are Wild Orchid with punched fern leaves.

You may have noticed those funky new Sugar Nellie stamps advertised on my sidebar. I found out today that I have won something from SN for publicising their new range. How great is that. No idea what I have won, but anything from SN will be lovely.I'm not sure I will have much time, if any, for crafting or blogging this weekend so enjoy yourselves and I will catch up with you as soon as I can.
