Me,Vintage?

I made this card for my Mother-in-Laws birthday yesterday (hope you had a nice day Mum), Different colouring to my normal choice but I am very pleased with it and will definately use them again.



I'm not sure who the papers are by as I'd thrown the edge strip away without thinking but it was a double sided sheet. My Gorjuss girl was coloured using Copics I shaped her and used a foam pad to sit her on the scrummie,bargain lace from Scrapbook Sisters.



The letters are Sizzix Alphabet Sunset which I double cut and offset to give a two tone effect. The lovely gems in the centre of the flowers are Papermania.




I'm using this card for the following challenges:-

SCF Challenge 9, 3+flowers,

Kardsandklay Blogspot, Free for all

SMC19 challenge, Anything goes,

Challenge up Your Life 23,Vintage,
The Shabby Tea Rooms week 15,cottage comfort,
Stamp Something Challenge,something Vintage with flowers
Thanks for stopping by,
Julie.x

This card is lovely. Wonderful details. You are a coloring wizard!
Thank you for all the sweet comments on my blog. I wonder if that is why I do challenges - just so someone will comment. Is that pathetic? I'm not sure. I thought I was participating in challenges for the inspiration - maybe not?

I'm up to a whopping 14 followers... not sure why the validation is 'important' when it is the creating is the soul fulfilling piece...hmmmm...will have to ponder that one.
I'm now a happy follower of your blog. Your cards are wonderful! Love your ability to create cards varying from layers of details to serene simplicity.
Again, thank you for your kind words.
