Vintage Belle

I love Vintage Cards and so thought I would have a go at one just for fun... I chose the paper first ... it's so pretty that I didn't want to cover up the detail... so I added the embellies sparingly...

Paper: Prima - Fairy Belle
Butterfly - MCH - Prima - Flutter Bits
Dragonfly - MCH - Memory Box Die - Willow Dragonfly

I have had a hectic week as my dad was poorly again... he is feeling much better now though and I have finally caught up with my sleep!! so I am looking forward to chilling out this weekend and just watching some TV and Crafting... I have ordered lots of new crafting goodies and so looking forward to playing with them!! I have Frantage!!!!!! LOL :-))) 

Hope you are all well... Thank you for all your lovely comments... I really do appreciate every one of them!! 

Take Care and hope you have a lovely weekend..
Love and hugs

This is absolutely gorgeous Sue, I love your papers and they are perfect with your beautiful vintage image, I'm not surprised you didn't want to cover them up by over embellishing - I think you've got it just right.
Take it easy and have a good weekend.
