Happy Easter with a vintage feel

Good morning blogland and all you lovely ladies out there.  Another month has arrived and with it another Crafty Bloggers Network Challenge and my Design Team card.  This month the theme is "Anything Goes" and this month's prize will be fabulous digital downloads from our sponsor Rick St Dennis.  Pop over and take a look at the other fabulous DT cards and details of this month's sponsor and the challenge here.

I chose this fabulous digital download from Rick St Dennis called Isabella Easter Egg Hunt, it has a Victorian feel to it so I decided to try something a little vintage.  I found some lovely Prima Botanical Collection papers and went from there.  I added a little worn lipstick DI to some of the papers and sewed round the edges of the pieces before matting and layering them onto the card.  Two small patterned doilies were added and a strip of gathered ribbon (from an old blouse).  The image was printed onto white linen card, cut to shape and the corners rounded using a Martha Stewart lace punch, the image was coloured with DI and mounted with 3D sticky pads, paper roses in pink and cream were added with a few pearls.

I did think about distressing the edges of the card and image but decided to go for vintage colourings rather than well worn vintage, not all recipients of my cards understand the concept of distressing a card!!.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Rhedd and  Rosies Challenge - Vintage/Shabby
Alsorts Challenge Blog - Vintage
