Lace and Pearls at Vintage Stamping Challenges

Good morning folks, don't you just love Mondays when you don't have to go to work??  Today's card is my DT offering for Vintage Stamping Challenges where our theme is 'Lace and Pearls'. As always we've got a fab prize up for grabs from our generous sponsor Leo at Flonzcraft so ink up those stamps and play along. If you've got a few minutes, put your feet up, have a cuppa and check out at my talented teamies projects as they are fab-u-lous! 

I've used one of my favourite stamps from Flonzcraft for this card, I've paper pieced the dresses and coloured the image with Graph'it markers. I've added a die cut butterfly, corners and a nestie frame, all in kraft card. The flowers are all from my stash aapart from the rose which I made with die cuts. The gorgeous lace and ribbon are from the Ribbon Girl. To finish off I've added a seam binding bow and a pearly swirl - is it just me or does anyone else get in a real tangle with these jokers? I always struggle with them lol.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Card Crafters Cirle: buds, blossoms and blooms
Crafty Calendar: Blooms and blossoms
Eclectic Ellapu: anything goes
Milk Coffee: lace and pearls
One stop craft: flower power

Thanks so much for popping by, have a lovely Monday
