Vintage style greetings card

I used my new X-Cut emboss/cut folder and an old Pion vintage image for this card.  I added 38mm ivory faux silk, 10mm ivory square pearl trim, white guipure lace leaves, pink large rosebud, white daisy, green daisy leaves and an ivory 30mm wild rose and some 3mm ivory s/a pearls to the centres of the cut-out flowers.  I think this would make a lovely frame for a photo.  This card is for sale in my Etsy Store

All embellishments are from The Ribbon Girl

Sending you happy thoughts ....

A greetings card with a lovely image from the digital Winnie Polkadoodles Celebrations 2 set with co-ordinating digital paper.

I added a pink daisy, pretty pink lily flower, blue/white beaded stamen, 65mm 'Louise' white guipure lace topped with some 6-row pearl trim (cut down to 4 rows).  The ribbon is 15mm dusky pink satin topped with a sparkly acrylic button tied on with silver twine.  The sentiment is from LOTV

I have made this card especially for The Ribbon Girl 'Anything Goes' Challenge and there are two lovely prizes, one from Nikky at  Polkadoodles and one from The Ribbon Girl  -  please pop over and be inspired by the other examples  -  we love to see what you have been making - and the challenge will run until 28th April so you've got lots of time to make something, and it doesn't have to be a card, it can be a card, tag, layout, bag, box - whatever you wish

see you soon, Mary x

Wishing you a peaceful and joyous Easter .....
