It's Vintage with Layers & Lace

Crafting With Dragonflies Challenge Blog

Here we are already into our 5th Challenge over at 
Crafting with Dragonflies. 
It only seems like yesterday we were the new
'Blog on the Block'

And now we are moving on to
Our New Challenge for you which is

Our Sponsors for this challenge are

who generously supplied the DT with our choice of images.

I chose French Love Letter - perfect for the theme of my card PARIS.


Here is my card

I started with black cs and topped it with scripted dp.
Added layers with blue floral print and a pale rose pink paper.
Both these have been pierced around the edges.
Behind the main focal image are some Spellbinder flourishes.
For the main image I stamped the Eiffel Tower over the 
French Love Letter Script
and then various other stamps randomly on the page. 
All stamps are from Kaisercraft
Inked the edges with black to highlight.
Sponged with Peacock Feathers & Victorian Velvet Distress Inks and gold shimmer.
I also sponged my double bow with ribbon from Kazazz with Victorian Velvet 
and placed a few pearls to add the final touch.

Hope you like what I have made for your inspiration 
and you will pop over to my other Design Team Friends 
to see what lovely Vintage they have made for you too.

Once you have done that we would love to see

I am entering this card in the Vintage Challenge over at
