Vintage Wedding



Hi Folks,

Wow - I was a top pick at Make My Monday last week!  - so thrilled.
This week at Make my Monday it's Vintage Weddings...hm...  I don't have any suitable stamps.....so I downloaded a lovely vintage image (but can't remember where from - sorry - just a Google search).
I bought the Spellbinders Romantic Rectangles a couple of weeks ago at a Craft Fair, and this is the first time I have used them.  I decided to make them look like a vintage frame, cut out the 2 largest rectangles, distressed with Antique Linen whilst they were still in the frames, I also lightly distressed the edges.
I die cut the image and then matted onto a scalloped oval,  and then glued on some pearls  - fortunately they were on a string, the hardest bit was holding it in place till it set!  The flowers (TH Tattered Florals) were cut in pearl card and inked with Antique Linen and Vintage Photo - gives a lovely golden glow.

I am also entering this card in :
  Crafty Ribbons - Vintage
  The Pink Elephant Challenge - Wedding Anniversary's
  Challenges4Everybody - Anything Goes
  The Squirrel & the Fox - Anything Goes
  Make it Monday - Anything Goes

Thats it for now, and thanks for looking,

Avril xx
