A Little Note

I wasn't sure what I was going to do with this image at first.  I've seen many of our Dressy Girls colour in in some lovely colours, so I thought I'd do something a little different.  I was browsing some vintage style birthday cards when I though oooo I could colour it sepia and do a vintage style card.

I've coloured the image monochrome using Copics to give it that vintage look.  I've then used some Vintage Photo ink from Tim Holtz and a Tonic Solutions tool to distress the image.

To the left of the image I've added a floral arrangement, the image above shows a close up of this,  I've picked flowers to match the theme of the image and card.  To the right of the card I've added some cream lace and a hand tied bow using some seam binding and a couple more flowers,

My design paper is from Maja Design, this was also distressed.  The two little banners were cut using a Fantasy Die and some scraps of First Edition paper.

I've added a few more things to finish the card, some pearls, a brass corner piece and a tiny wooden heart.

Hope you like my inspiration for today.  you can see more from the dressy girls today in the Facebook Group and on the challenge blog
