Vintage Rose

Today I have the honour of being a Guest Designer at Crafting by Designs - thank you for having me 

I've been admiring this stamp for ages and it's definitely become my new favourite.  It reminds me of Holly Hobby (when I was young) and all the historical dramas on TV - it's just so beautiful!

The image is one of Julia Spiri's called The Victorian Hat.

I've chosen to colour her in pastels using my favourite ProMarkers and then cut her out with a Spellbinders die.

Here's a close up of the flowers and pins arranged to the left of the card.  The pins were from The Ribbon Girl, the flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Live and Love Crafts and the sentiment badge is a Lemoncraft one

I've done a shaped card this time, hand cutting the papers which are from Joy Craft and Studio Light.  Just behind the image you can see some paper cut with a Little Darlings die.

On to the final few touches, some organza rose trim from Wild Orchid Crafts, some lace from The Ribon Girl and a clay heart from Live and Love Crafts.

Phew lot to this one.  I need to do more CAS card their easier to write about - LOL!!

Hope you'll pop along to the Anything Goes challenge for June at Crafting by Designs
