A Little Bit Vintage

Hi everyone. It's been a few days since I last posted. I've been sorting out computer problems, and we've been looking around for a new bed.....which is a complete nightmare!! And you don't really know until you've actually spent a night on one, what the after effects are going to be - LOL!

Today my card isn't for any specific occasion, but it will come in handy for someone, eventually.  I'm entering this into the DYSU  challenge #55 - Use patterned paper...
My base card is Kraft. I then added a piece of patterned paper printed from the Crafty Secrets CD, and some ribbon lace from my stash.  The roses and leaves were cut on Cameo, and I added some gold stamen to the largest rose.  I used Gold Leaf - Rub 'n Buff over the Spellbinder label, then cut some cream card and matted that on top.  The sentiment is by Anna Griffin, stamped with chocolate Impress ink.

Thanks for stopping by xx

Beautiful Sasha, the roses are gorgeous! Good luck with the bed, it's a hard task finding one to spend the next 10 years on!! We should be allowed to sample them for a couple of weeks:)
