I didn't use any of the vintage lace on this card, but I did use vintage buttons. On the two red buttons I added a couple of pearl embellishments. Those buttons just looked a little bare without them...and believe me...I pulled a lot of buttons out of my button jars, before deciding on these 3.
I love to attend estate auctions, and I've managed to pick up some beautiful vintage lace and buttons over the past couple of years. Sometimes it's hard to let go of them (ie: attaching them to a card). But, I'm getting a little better at "letting go" of my treasures. See!!!
I am SO pleased with this card and it was such fun to make.
This card is going into 2 challenges:
Paper Players Challenge #24 ~ cherry cobbler, always artichoke and a neutral
CASE Study #15 ~ I was inspired by the shape of the Heather's card...it reminded me of a doily.
Click through to each of these blogs to see all the deets!
* Edit* This card is also going into the Crazy 4 Challenges #64 ~ add circles to your project.
Okay, enough of my ramblings...here's my vintage-y card!
