Live in the moment

Good evening everyone where ever in the world you are I hope you are all keeping well, I would like to thank you all for the lovely comments you have been leaving.
I have been a little busy doing cards for people and this is one of the wedding cards I was asked to do (only another 2 for this lady) she wanted it Vintage also a bit burlesque what she didn't tell me the bride was very arty which panicked me a bit, I hope this is what the bride likes. I have been playing with my stash of late although I have just bought a melting pot and I have been inspired big time by a lady called Liz Welsh what she does with Friendly plastic and the melt pot is a must to watch.
For this card I have used:
Stamps from
Tim Holtz Urban chic # CMSO86 (background to heart and Sentiment)
Making Memories (wings) # 31843
Pearls from Hobby House
Karantha Heart mould
Kaisercraft DP from Porcelain collection (precious P1164)
Spellbinder's Lattice Motif Die
Fantasy Film (Which might be at least 4 year old)
various embossing powders
Feathers and Lace from stash
Diamond glaze ( hi-lighted Rose and Bird)
Copic marker for Letters (was silver)

This is where I have been inspired: - Lace - 3 different embellies - Shabby and Vintage - animals - sketch - use pearls -Wedding or Love - any sentiment - LOC or Girlie - shabby chic/vintage - anything goes

  4. What a fabulous array of vintage embellishments! LOVE all the textures!!! Thanks for joining us at House of Cards for our Shabby/Vintage Sketch Challenge! Hope you come again soon! :) Mynn xx

  5. Lovely vintage elements put together wonderfully to create your card, thank you for sharing with us at the House of Cards, suzanne x

  6. Oh my goodness, what a beautiful card Janet! A wonderful mix of accent elements!

    Sadly, it doesn't meet our challenge requirements and so cannot be considered for a Top 5 spot. At House of Cards we have a monthly theme and a weekly style. Our style this week is Shabby & Vintage - and your card certainly meets THAT requirement! - but our monthly theme is a sketch so we wanted to see Shabby & Vintage style cards following our sketch layout. Your card has followed the sketch from Fat-tastic Tuesday.

    I'm so glad I got to see your very special card, thanks so much for sharing it with us at HOC. I really hope you'll join in with us again in the future - just remember our challenges are two-fold - a monthly theme and a weekly style. We'd really love to see more of your work!
