OSCC Vintage

Its a new challenge at One Stop Craft Challenge and this week our theme is my favourite trend of the moment, Vintage :-)
For this project I used an image from the 'The Graphics Fairy' and isnt she just gorgeous?!
I used Bo Bunny Gabrielle papers, Pearlescent embossed paper, MS Punch, Tim Holtz distress inks, Papermania Aqua Capsule Collection, Flocked paper from my stash, pearl ribbon, and a gorgeous aqua flower.
I wanted to pick out the blues in her dress in the card to really show it off so I used the Aqua paper and aqua flower to accent it, and used neutral brown and cream colours alongside it. I inked all the edges of the card blank and the first layer of Bo Bunny backing paper. I chose two design papers to fan alongside the image and used my stitching tool on the aqua paper. I then added a 'Happy Birthday' dome sticker on the middle aqua panel in her line of vision.
I punched a border into the pearlescent paper, then placed this along the bottom, and stained it with Tim Holtz tea stain ink.
Next I added the aqua flower and pearl ribbon along the stained pearlescent border, and added a tiny little butterfly in the top right hand corner. I hope you like my efforts!

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Inspire me Fridays: Anything Goes
The Paper Shelter: Anything Goes
Dutch Dare Challenges: Birthday
Craft Us Crazy: Anything Goes
Stampin With the Dragon: 3 DP, 3 Embellishments, One Border
