Vintage - Cheery Lynn Designs

Hi and Good Morning :)

Back again today with my DT card for our new challenge over at Cheery Lynn Designs, where this week our theme is 'Vintage'.  Cheery Lynn have some beautiful and very elegant dies which are perfect for a vintage creation, and I really enjoyed making this style of card.
I started off with an 8 x 8 inch blank card base, so this is quite big.  I layered HOTP papers onto Kraft card and pale cream bazzill card, and the same cardstock was used for cutting all the dies. 
I used the wonderful Sophia's Heart doily die for the background and the border lace is the stunning Anastasia Border.  I added the Fanciful Flourish die to the side panel and then matted my vintage photograph using Oval scalloped and oval stacker dies.  I tucked  just one from the set of 3 Lace Deco Corners around the edges of the picture and added some pearls.
The bottom right hand corner uses Victorian Romance Flourish.  This was the first Cheery Lynn die I ever bought and still remains one of my favourites.  I made some baby's breath flower stems (these were soooo easy!), and the larger white flowers were again nicked out of my pot pourri bowl! :D lol.
All dies used on this card are:

Lace Corner Deco H
Sophia's Heart
Anastasia Border
Lace Corner Deco B
Fanciful Flourish
Oval stacker
Scalloped oval stacker
Exotic Butterflies Small #2
Exotic Butterflies - Small
Victorian Romance Flourish
Embellishment #2 - Baby's Breath
Rose Leaf Strip

I hope you find time to enter our challenge this week, I love looking at all the creative ways everyone interprets the challenges and uses these dies, its such a pleasure.  Dont forget, there is also daily inspiration from the other talented members of the DT over on our Cheery Lynn Designs Inspiration Blog, so check back often :)

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Live & Love Crafts - Autumnal colours
Allsorts Challenge - Stitching
Sketch Saturday - Fab sketch - I flipped it to the side - hope thats ok :)

Have a smashing day, and thanks so much for visiting today.

Wet, windy & more of the same on our hillside.
Your use of pearls is spectacular on this & I just love that colour combination - utterly classy. The way you've used those tiny little die-cut flowers on the kraft stems & how they echo those of the image is a lovely touch indeed. I can sit & just look at this..............
Keep warm.

Hi Alison,
This is amazingly beautiful. Love the image and all the different dies (can't believe how many you managed to fit onto your card! :-)). You probably haven't thought about it, as your first entry for the LLC Oct challenge was at the beg of the month and this one at the end, but we do have max one entry per person and challenge. Nevermind; I'm so happy I didn't miss out on this stunning creation!

Breathtakingly beautiful Alison. Gorgeous dies and image. Pat K.xx
