Vintage Collage

Hello everyone....sorry i have not been around much this last 10 days. Work and life have been a priority but I am back and hopefully so is my Mojo !!

I have  made this vintage collage card for someone special....kinda running late but I know it will be appreciated.

Background was a paper from my stash on which I blended DI's and matted on to navy card. The lace is from Crafty Individuals and was adhered with Ranger wonder tape. The stamps used are a mixture of Oxford Impressions (April in Paris), which I love, and  TH Stampers Anonymous Classic Favourites ( SC008) and one from my stash. A small die cut was adhered with foam pads and a flower adhered with glossy accents.

I used foam pads on two of the stamped image to add dimension to the collage piece. A small piece of fabric and a butterfly finish this off.

 Having looked again at this photograph  I  think I shall add a pearl to the butterfly to finish.

I am entering this project in the 'Anything Goes' challenges over at Simon Says Stamp Challenge and the  Stamp and Create Challenge. You should have a look at the inspirational makes by the Design Teams and even join in.

Hope to catch up with you all over the weekend x
