Thank you Inspiration at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning all, and a very happy Monday to you :-) I'm heading off to work in a minute but before I get  my nose to the grindstone I just wanted to share a card made for an inspiration post for our 'Thank you' Challenge at Vintage Stamping Challenges. Our lovely sponsor Leo from Flonzcraft has a $20 voucher up for grabs, so don't miss out!

I've used a bp from my stash, toned down with some watered down gesso and I've added faux stitching around the edges. The gorgeous image is from Flower Kingdom and i've used the pretty border stamp to create the border. The images have been coloured with promarkers and flexmarkers and i've used PanPastels to create a cloudy sky in the background. The sentiment is one of my favourite stamps from Chocolate Baroque. 

I've layered the image up over some cheesecloth, organza ribbon and lace. I've added lots of paper flowers, brushed with gesso and sprinkled with glamour dust.
 The beautiful vintage postcards are from the Gecko Galz and the butterfly charm is from the Ribbon Girl. To finish off i've added some faux pearls.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Art Impressions Stamps: Layer it up
Crafty Ribbons: anything goes with ribbon
Eclectic Ellapu: anything goes
Milk coffee: lace and pearls
Sweet Stampin: anything but birthday
Totally gorjuss: ribbon and pearls
Totally Papercrafts: flowers and lace
Word Art Wednesdays: anything goes

Have a good day, and thanks for popping by
