Vintage in pink


A little bit of shabby vintage for you today. The beautiful papers are from Craftwork cards. I especially like the paper with the roses on and new it would work perfectly for this card. I wanted to keep it quite tonal so tried to stick to shades of pinky peach so it would fit in with my vintage bride image. I distressed and inked the edges of my papers and flowers and die cut/inked a doily. I used a strip of my favourite lacy roses across the bottom of my card as it started to look a little bit top heavy. It ended up just as I had planned and that does not happen that often lol.
I have entered my card in the challenges listed below.
