A bit of Vintage

Morning dear peeps

and Happy Monday, another weekend over oh so quickly!!  I had all the ingredients of today's card laid out (as I always do) and looking at it all I thought oh wow this is such pretty stuff it should be a good one but  its really not doing it for me, something is def not right LOl.  Its for my MIL for Mothers day and hubby loves it so I am gonna send it but just feel a little disappointed.   The image of course is gorgeous and after checking out what was my mums  favourite colour I thought I should probably use it. Maybe its the colour I am not keen on!!

Anyway here it is, see what you think........





The image is Pion Design 'Ladies and the papers are MME, I used lots of lace and gesso and pretty pearls.

Entering into:
Joanna Sheen - Layer it up
Allsorts - For a Lady
One stop Craft  - Mothers Day

Have a great day, catch up after work.
Hugs

I always look at the card before I go on and read the blog post. I was thinking that you had made such a great choice of colors for this vintage card. Also I loved the laced frame and butterfly with spots. Funny thing, my favorite details are what you have the most doubts about. Leave the card as it is and look at it later again, and I'm sure you'll see the beauty of it.
