Vintage Chic

This is another girly card that was made last week but didn't get time to share. I find these cards easy to do when time is short.
I have used a Stamps Happen image from my friend Diane - there are 2 in the 'set' and I have the other one - so we swap (it really is good to have a friend who likes the same as me and I like the same as her!) The image is coloured with Promarkers with a little glitter for her 'jewels', the card base has been stamped and heat embossed with the Clarity Swirls. The ribbon looks brown in the photo, but is an exact match for the card base.

On checking around I can enter this card in the following challenges:

Passion for Promarkers - Sugar Rush - this is girly
The Stamp Man Challenge - Curls & Swirls - base card
One Stitch at a Time - A card for mum
Bling it On - Anything Goes
Craft Your Passion - Girly Girl

Having the weekend off from decorating, so hope I can fit some crafting in.

Thanks for looking and if you like what you see, please pop back.

Avril - you have to tell me how you managed to colour this so perfectly in black! :)

No way can I pull this off :) It really has a silky fabric look, and looks amazing.

Very elegant image and a very classy card.
