Vintage but not Shabby

Welcome to this weeks challenge from
This weeks theme picked by the very talented Tamara is
Vintage or Shabby Chic.
This weeks sponsor is Heather's Hobby Haven with a prize of a $15 voucher

My card this week is Tilda again. Stamped and coloured with Tria Pens. She has just been cut out and then distressed around the edge with Victorian Velvet distress ink. I have used a square card layered with pink distress co-ordinations and a nice vintage looking patterned paper whick has also been distressed with victorian velvet and tea dye.

Tilda has been layered onto 2 die cut shapes. The pink Layer is a spellbinders die, called Lattice Motifs, and the cream one is a Marianne die. I have put a border of brown distress co-ordinations along the bottom edged using a Marther Stewart border punch with a peice of pale pink ribbon on the top and a bow to one side.

The leaves ahve been punched out of brown card. The flowers are a bit of old stash I had been hanging on to for the right card and I think they look perfect on this one. They are a vintage metal flower then a pearl topped brad has been put through the center. I was pleased with the outcome of this card.
