MMM Challenge 8 - Vintage Lace and Pearls

Wow! Monday's come fast at Make My Monday! I really am enjoying this challenge blog. It is helping me to branch out and create cards I might not ordinarily create. As the title implies, we continue to make vintage cards this week for Challenge 8 with an emphasis on lace and pearls. Does the fact that I had to go out and buy pearls last week and this week tell you my style is not normally vintage?? I decided on a pink background paper, actually a card trimmed to fit another card blank, a leftover Christmas blank card with a deckle edge. I border punched the pink panel with a punch by Martha Stewart, layered lace and seam binding over top and then began stamping my images and sentiment from a plate called Birds of a Feather by Artistic Outpost with Sepia ink by Versafine. The bird is by TPC Studios and the heart stickers and pink pearls are by Martha Stewart. I added distress inks and Copic markers for a hint of color. Looking forward to seeing everyone else's work! Thanks for stopping by. Yvonne
