A touch of vintage

Hey hey! How are you? My week off is officially over. I wouldn't mind a couple of more free days though. lol I had a lot of fun! I went on some one-day trips around the country, did some crafting ... Just fun and relaxing things! I didn't do as much crafting as I planned though. I think my mojo took a break too. *sigh*

Anyways, I still managed to make this card.

I received these gorgeous Prima papers and the fab lace from sweet Chelsea (thank you so much!!! xx) and I really wanted to make something from them. And this is the result. A vintage Tilda card. The plan was to stay away from the cute images for a change, but couldn't do it. *oops* This was the very first Tilda stamp I've ever bought and I think she's a real cutie. Wouldn't you agree? I think she can be used for many different occassions. I coloured her with distress inks. I raised Tilda on foam pads to give the card some dimension.

See those big(ger) printed-over flowers? I received those from my amazing friend Rosie (thank you bunches!! xx). She sent them to me quite some time ago, but I didn't want to use them, because I thought they were so beautiful and I knew that once they are gone, they are gone. But I thought they would be perfect for this card, so I went ahead and used some. The roses and white flowers came from my stash. The butterfies are a stamp from Rubber stampede. I coloured those with distress inks as well. Ribbons, doily, crystals and pearl strings came from my stash. I used Viva decor pearl pen for the dots on scalloped circles. 

So much from me today. Have a wonderful day! 
Hugs! xx
