Vintage beiges


I made a card pretty much identical card to this before christmas and someone thought it would perhaps make a nice vintage style wedding card if done in paler colours, not sure about that but gave it a go and I like it!! I made a grungey flower, the birdcage is cut with the cricut and the bird and branch an EK punch, I found some matching lace for the bow. I've had the hat pins years and coloured them with a promarker.
I've spent the morning prepping for a basic stamping workshop I'm doing next weekend and then before I can do any crafting I have to clear my desk which is a tip - a tip covered in the card candy I dropped all over it - so I think for the rest of the day I'm staying in front of the fire looking out at the snow.
I'll enter this into the Stamp Man challenge - Embellish it.

This is so pretty Maureen - just goes to show that much as we love colour, a beautiful design can still be created with only a very little.
