Vintage Style Birthday

Something completely different from my recent posts is this vintage style card in soft blue's and cream's with silver.The colours are subtle in real life and I have struggled to get a good photograph for this post so I hope it shows up well on your computers.


I heat embossed the Tailors Dummy Clarity Stamp twice in silver and decoupaged one image on to the other and then I added a silver/grey ribbon bow. The prepared image was centred into an Anna Griffin frame that I have had for ages just waiting for the right opportunity to be used.It was all mounted onto silver mirri card and placed onto a cream card base .

I hand stitched the button's and made a sample thread tag and finished it with pearl -head pins. To complete the embellishment I added a silver sentiment and of course my favourite butterfly.

I am going to try and enter this into the following challenges:
Craftycatz Butterflies and Buttons
Craftyourdaysaway With Wings
The Secretcraftersaturday Blue and Cream
Craftycreations Butterfly
Creatalicious Vintage
Polka Doodles Vintage
