Vintage Sewing Card

Hello dear friends! I have a card to share with you today. It is once again time for a new challenge at the Frilly and Funkie Blog! Cec is our hostess and her theme is 'on the runway.'  All you have to do is create a vintage or shabby chic project that depicts sewing and/or fashion. For challenge specifics just click on the blog link above and prepare to join crafty fun!

I can't get enough of Prima's new Cartographer papers, so I distressed them and layered them up for the base of my card. The vintage image in the center is one I created in Photoshop. 

I crafted several blooms using a Tim Holtz die, then added a bit of stained lace and twine to my floral arrangements.  

Thank you for coming by to visit with me today. I hope you'll join in the challenge over at Frilly and Funkie!! May your day be lovely in every possible way!
