This week's Challenge - Vintage (?)

This week's challenge was to creat a card using a Vintage Theme. I haven't done Vintage before, so I'm not really sure I quite nailed it, but I think the card is cute (and rather simple). I inked up a new stamp I had not yet used (Princess Tilda) and paper pieced her dress to give her a dress with flowers. She was colored with copics and I used some stickles on her slip, crown and lace on her dress. I used cats eye inks to ink the edges of all my papers and a CTMH stamp for the designer corners. Prima flowers were also edged with cats eye ink & a brown brad from my collection used in the middle of the flower. I was distracted * a LOT * while working on this card, so not everything is as I wanted it - plus I noticed that my tilda was put on there crooked! It's too late now - next time I'll make my card when I'm not so distracted! Hope you enjoy & be sure to come over to Creative Stamp Friends to join our challenge!
