There are several components that brought this card together.
I've been waiting for a fussy layout for the sketch from Crafting Life's Pieces.
I had this image, which I printed some time ago (sorry, can't remember which vintage site I got it from). And when I saw the theme (relax & enjoy) and colours (yellow, green, pink + neutrals) from The Shabby Tea Room, I knew this was perfect for it.
City Crafter Challenge blog provided the inspiration for the papers (Pink Petticoat Vintage Rose Collection)
and the details come from Make My Monday (Vintage with the addiition of lace and pearls).
This is my card:
I'm not a girly and frilly kinda gal, so this is a different thing for me. My usual makes are more krafty and grungy than softly dreamy. I really wanted to do this though. Does she not look so relaxed and dreamy?

The background paper actually came with a white base. I used glimmer mists to alter the papers for a better match. I even misted the translucent lace at the base of the border. The chipboard die cut was misted, and then edged with forest moss DI. Everything else was edged in my favourite DI, vintage photo.
I didn't have any edging lace or pearls, so i actually went out to get some. Which was why I had to delay creating my vision.
I found the ribbon wrap too wide for the border, so I folded and stitched it with a decorative stitch (with a sewing machine, of course! ). The pearls were then hand-sewn along the ribbon. I also used pearls to make a decorative pin for the ribbon bow.
There are lines of liquid pearls along the fancy die cut. I thought a big bouquet there might overwhelm the whole card, so I've kept it rather plain.
It fits the theme (shabby sparkle) over at Cupcake Craft Challenges, so I'm linking up there as well.
Thanks for looking!
