Vintage Picture Card

Ripustettava kortti ystävälleni, jonka aikanaan tapasin ranskantunneilla. Vanhasta 50-luvun kirjasta leikattu teksti ja samasta materiaalista tein kukat, jotka on suihkutettu Memories Mistillä ja Sticklesillä. Alla kullalla embossattu Paris-leima ja tekstin päällä Eiffel- torni. Paperinarusta puretut lehtikoristeet, helmiä, timantteja ja pikkuruusut ja tietenkin pitsiä. Paperi Basic Grey (curio), reunoissa Distress Ink (walnut stain).
I found this beautiful picture in "Picture and Scrap Challenge" and this is my entry.
"Mademoiselle Mireille de Paris" a card that can be hang on the wall too.
Text and the flowers are made from old book from fifties, flowers sprayed with Memories Mist (amaretto) and Stickles. Paper is Basic Grey's curio and stamped and gold embossed with Paris-stamp (ibfs) and on the text there's also the Eiffel Tower stamped. Distress Ink (walnut stain) finishes the edges; pearls, gems, little roses, paper twine and of course the lace.
I add this to these challenges too:
Papertake Weekly: Anything with flowers
Crazy 4 Challenges: Vintage
ABC Challenge: Nesties (Spellbinders' Blossom)
Stamp Fairy Challenge: Home made flowers

Oi vau, tää on aivan mahtavan upea!! Mistä tuli mieleen: taisi tulla kuori ilman korttia? Jäi olo, että se unohtui kun tungin niitä karkkeja kyytiin :)
Toivottavasti ne on edes ok (kaikki ei niistä tykkää). Ne on japanilaisia, Tokyokanista ostettuja. Osa niistä on vihreä tee -karkkeja, mun suosikkeja.
