Card - Vintage Whimsy

This card was made to use up scraps for a challenge over at Sugar Creek Hollow which is a site I have just discovered.  The base of the card was Stampin' Up (one of the brown colours from the neutrals pack).  I then layered a piece of ivory card over this, followed by a scrap piece of Polka dot paper (Prima) from my scrap box.  The image is by Paper Whimsy which also needed using up.  This was cut out, distressed & edged with Walnut Distress Ink.  The Prima paper had the same distressing treatment, plus a little ink applied randomly over the centre too.

The border is a Die-namics die (Scallop Ribbon) cut in the same Stampin' Up brown card stock as the base.  Pearls were added to embellish it from Wild Orchid Crafts.  The flowers are hand made ones that also needed using up, and I added a couple of feathers to fill in the gaps.

    Love the card!
    Have a nice day, Rachel!

  4. Very pretty! The flowers are just beautiful. I'll have to see if you've done a tutorial on how to make them!

    1. Update: I did find the tutorial on making Prima-type flowers on your Utube site! They don't seem that hard to do and are so pretty. Now I will be looking for some mulberry paper that has that interesting texture. Thanks for all the great tutorials!

  5. A really stunning vintage card! Every element is beautiful. Thanks for sharing with us at Sugar Creek Hollow this week.
