Vintage Crazy!

Hi Everyone,

Just wanted to share a card a created tonight, I just love this little girl, she looks so sweet.  It comes from a printable download called 'retro squares' I bought on Etsy from 'madebyjanet'.  I swear I want one of everything she sells, lol!  The paper is Cosmo Cricket 'Something New', the laser cut paper is from pinflair, the 'Congratulations' stamp and green crystals were from a Hero Arts stamp set and the rose I made with cheap lining cut into circles and synged with a heat gun.  I used a paper rose from Wild Orchid in the centre and then sprayed with Tattered Angels Glimmer Mist in Old Lace.  The ditsy floral fabric was a scrap I had lying around!

I would like to enter this into this weeks Polka Doodles Challenge 'English Country Garden'

It's a slight cheat in that I have used 2 patterned papers and a fabric as opposed to 3 different patterned papers but I would also like to enter the 'Shabby Tea Room'  'Mix and Match' challenge as well

I am also entering the Allsorts 'Free and Easy' Challenge

I have also taken part in 'Make it Monday'

I am entering this card into Crafts and Me Challenge 'Anything Goes'

Thanks for stopping by,

Colette x.
