Vintage style at Marianne Design Divas

The new challenge over on the Marianne Design Divas blog is to create something with a vintage style and at least 3 products by Marianne Design. Our sponsors for this challenge are Buddly Crafts and Marianne Design.  The DT have produced beautiful examples for your inspiration so why not pop over and take a peek!

I have taken a picture from the Matties Beautiful Flowers sheet to make a Spring card - I do hope it's not so far away, I'm tired of all the rain! I've die cut the oval image then inked the edges before fixing to the beautiful oval die cut frame, where I've used the same ink to highlight the embossed areas.

Here's the card, I've had to photo enhance as the colours were looking too pale and washed out, so perhaps it's not quite this bright in real life and what looks like a layer of kraft coloured card is actually more caramel in colour, the card is much warmer in real life with soft caramel tones and chalk inked highlights and edges with Sahara Sand:

I've added the sparkly edging with the Viva Decor 3d snow pen and fine pale golden glitter from my stash, and also added the caramel coloured pearl dots in places on the paper too.  The pretty lace is by MD and is much creamer also.  I've die cut the flowers from Mulberry paper then inked with yellow chalk ink, spritzed, scrunched and then when dry teased them out.  The leaves I've die cut from the caramel and green card and inked the edges for the vintage style.

Here's a close up of the corner embellishment.

Marianne Design products I used for this card:
Victorian Vintage paper bloc PK9092
oval frame LR0240

On the We Love Vintage blog the current challenge is for vintage style with lace - I hope that's how it's translated anyway.  So I will enter my card with them as I do have vintage lace and think I might have got the style sussed at last!
