A highland fling with the Rainbow Lady

Hello there, its time for a new challenge at Rainbow Lady's Challenge Blog and this week, Cynthia has chosen the theme of 'Highland Fling' in celebration of Burns Night!

I've got to admit this one had me baffled for a while but I decided to go with the 'fling' element and make a romantic card using some gorgeous tartan bp from Crafty Ann's Digi Shop. I love tartan, especially this fab colourway. I've stamped a frame from Joanna Sheen on some purple mirri card and cut out the oval centre. The sentiment is also from Joanna Sheen, stamped on some vellum. The vintage man and lady are from, you guessed it, Joanna Sheen. I stamped them both with black and coloured with promarkers, then I stamped the lady again on some purple bp and embossed with gilded ivory EP to give her a beautiful purple and cream dress. I don't often do any paper piecing but I quite like the effect on her dress. The flowers are from Jazzlins Designs and the ribbon is from Crafty Ribbons.

I'm entering this card in the following challenges:
Wags'n'Whiskers: With love
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge: Anything but a square (ok a rectangle may not be the most exciting shape but at least its not a square lol)
Pile it on: anything goes
