More vintage

I thought I knew just what I wanted to do when I started to make this card but didn't quite work out the way I planned. The lady in the image was originally facing the other way and it didn't look right with her on the other side of the card so scanned it and mirror imaged it, the scan managed to turn the turquoisy greenny colours in her dress blue which was  a bit annoying, anyhow the rest of the card is pink and green which are the colours on this weeks Dutch Dare photo inspiration challenge.         Sugar Creek Hollow challenge is as always vintage, with paper flowers,lace and bling, now I don't really do bling so haven't much in my stash, the flower centres are some jewelry findings with pearl brads in them and just added the pearl headed pins..

  4. I think your card is lovely...I am not a big bling girl myself and sometimes that is a challenge, but I think your pearls and pins definitely qualify. Love the handmade flowers,too. Great job with the challenge this week at Sugar Creek Hollow and thanks for playing.
