Quick card tonight for a few challenges. Going to be away for a few days and probably won't have any internet connection.

Our Creative Corner  - Words, Words, Word

Country View Crafts - Quotations/sayings - mine is from a Hero Arts Stamp

House Of Cards - Picture Inspiration - I've taken orange/white flowers and an Oval

Crafty Cardmakers - 1 Stamp, 2 DP. 3 embellishments (die cut spray, paper flower, pearl button in middle of flower)

and now for the twist - I just realised I have stuck the whole card together upside down!  will have to do a dismantling job       LOL


  1. Hello Joan
    Thank you so much for joining us at HOC this week, as you know I enjoy looking at your work, and this card looks terrific, the diecuts create so much movement. You just need to turn your sentiment piece around as the rest looks okay to me.

  2. What a beautiful sentiment, and a beautiful card.

    Thanks for sharing it with us

  3. Beautiful Joan, a great interpretation of the photo and a perfect shabby/vintage card! I'd echo what Sue said about the sentiment, I think that would all that's needed rather than an entire dismantle! Thanks so much for joining us at HOC, please come back soon! Ruth x

  4. Lovely quote you have used for a really pretty vintage style card! Thanks for joining us at house of cards this week. Jules :)

  5. A lovely, elegant card - the background paper is so pretty. I can't see how it's upside-down! Thanks so much for playing along with us at Our Creative Corner.

  8. Beautiful card. The perfect composition. Thanks so much for playing along with us at HOC.

  9. Sooo beautiful with all the die cut "lace" elements, who are such a lovely contrasting element to the beautiful background! A lovely make!
