Vintage Amelia

Morning Folks
Hope you are all having a good week.  
Just popping by to share a quick card that I made last night using one of the gorgeous vintage images from Pink Gem Designs.


The image is Amelia and I teamed her up with some vintage papers which are also available from Pink Gem. I wanted a vintagy look so decided to keep the image quite subtle.  I used some distress ink to add an aged look to the image die.  I then used chalks to give some slight colour to the image.  Think it worked quite well.    Didn't want to go overboard on the embellishments so just added some lace, some flowers, a sentiment and a few pearls.

Thanks for popping by and would love to hear what you think.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Hobby House - Anything goes
Charisma Cardz - Layers
Aud Sentiments - Anything goes
A Creative Romance - Anything goes
OSAAT - Pretty it up
Love to Create - Vintage or shabby
TTCRD - Anything goes
