Vintage Mothers Day

Hello my lovelies how are you all today? 
I'm here today with a card I made a couple of days ago when I saw my lovely teamies card for
 Live & Love Crafts Challenge. She inspired me sooooooooo much I made a card straight away, couldnt blog it til today though cus of DT commitments.
I made a Mother's Day card for my step-mum, check how organised I am I even ordered her present online after I finished the new year resolution so far is going well ;0)
Hubster brought me loads of vintage-y items for crimbo, Pion & Maja papers etc. I love vintage, vintage & shabby chic or french chic actually............I would have a home full of this sort of stuff.

Antique brass corner, the postcard I cut out of 'Memories' paper & distressed the edges just a little bit. I made a double bow with seam binding & crinkled it so it didnt look new & added a cabochon I made myself. I added 'Lace' & some gorgeous 'Organza Trim', 2 WOC flowers, the berries are Magnolia & a 'White Poppy' at the bottom.

I added a Tim Holtz paper clip to the postcard & I also added 'Pearl String' to the flowers.

The papers I've used are all Maja Design Vintage Summer Basics,  1932 (you can see some of it under the bow), 1903 & 1905, they have all been inked as well. The image is Pion 'Ladies' from Grandma's Attic range, I got quite a few of these, they are lush. I also attached Pearl Trim around the edge of the image. There is also a small doily from my stash in there somewhere lol & I added a Scalloped Pearl to the corner.

Well thats all from me, as always click on the words in red & they will take you straight to that item ;0)

Thank you lovelies for stopping by I really do appreciate it. See you soon ;0)
Tatty bye for now xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

My bulbs have finally arrived so my pics after today will be back to normal woooooo hoooooooo

Challenges I'm Entering.............
Live & Love Crafts Challenge - Something Old (My old ingredient is the Paper Clip, I've had it forever & I went vintage )
