Make My Monday - GDT - Vintage Wedding



Good Morning :)  I hope everyone is having a good start to the week.  There was a distinct feel of autumn in the air yesterday, and it rained all day too- bah!

This is my 2nd card as a GDT for the Make My Monday challenge where the month long theme is Vintage and this week it is 'Vintage Weddings'. 

The gorgeous picture was from a set of ye olde postcards from Joanna Sheen and as they are no longer available I never want to use them up!  I always meant to stick them in a photo album and pretend some of them were my ancestors! lol :D

I stitched Prima and HOTP papers to cream card, and used 2 different MS PATP to make the backing mats.  The dies are a mix of Cheery Lynn, Memory Box, Doo Hickey and Marianne and the flowers are WOC.  I threaded pearl seed beads onto the flower stalks and the charms are from stash.  The organza ribbon is Joanna Sheen and the gorgeous hat pin was made by my blogging buddy Karen (thanks hun).

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Wild Orchid Challenge - Layer it up
Die-ing for a challenge - Anything Goes

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today and have a smashing week! :)

Amazing picking out of the colours in those papers for the pinks & touches of green - so subtly effective & I love that little dove charm. The soft inking really makes this outstanding & as for the woven efffect on the base layer......speechless!

Wow! this is SO gorgeous Alison! I love the vintage image and the way you've framed it is really beautiful… absolutely stunning embellies!!
you made me chuckle about putting the photos in your family album… I have been trying to identify a couple of my very old family photos for about ten years… imagine if they were just plucked out of some random scrapbook…. shock horror!!! ROFL…..
Hope you have a lovely evening!
