Vintage anniversary




Had a card to make for a ruby anniversary and decided to go with a vintage type theme, well as close as I can get to vintage that is! I used papers from K & Co. Images are Magnolia, coloured with watercolour pencils. The label is a stamp from the Romanza set, embossed in gold and distressed lightly. I cut out the heart shape using my nestie, cut one the same in acetate and then held them together with a slightly larger size cut by hand to make a frame.

Tried to capture the acetate in this photo with the reflection of the sky, hope you can see it.
I added punched butterflies, flowers, pearls and ribbon. I don't normally do the inside with matching papers but decided I may as well as they end up in my scrap box anyway.
I am entering this into these challenges:
1. Bunny Zoe's - vintage
2. Just Us Girls - followed their sketch
3. Just Magnolia - acetate
4. Ellephantastic - anniversary
5. SimonSays Stamp and Show - things with wings
7. City Crafter - use a heart in your creation
Sending out a special welcome to my two new followers Jane and Christine! Thanks for making my day special!
