Vintage with Lace at Divas By Design

Oh this week we have a great challenge for you over at Divas By Design and it's 'Vintage with Lace'.  Now I have to admit when I first saw this theme I ran and hid!  I love vintage cards but I really struggle to make them!  But then isn't that the whole point of a challenge - to challenge ourselves!  We have a fab sponsor for you as always and this week its ...

Who do vintage so beautifully, so be sure to check them out.

So I took a deep breath and jumped on in and this is what I came out with and I have to say I am rather pleased with how it turned out.  I have used the dress form stamp from SteamPunk Dreams from Creative Expressions and I heat embossed it with Antique Gold powder, along with the butterfly and sentiment which are also from the same collection, the papers are MME 'Wild Asparagus and I've distressed all the edges and layered at different angles then I finished off with some beaded lace and a build a brad which has a piece of the paper in it and again is in an antique gold colour.  So yes different for me and  a challenge for me but I really enjoyed making this and have just managed to stop Ria from taking possession of it and it disappearing into her room! But at least the fact she wants to is a good sign! lol

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Fussy and Fancy Friday #106 ~ Vintage
Allsorts #243 ~ Vintage
