Vintage Cherish

My pile of UFO's (unfinished objects) is almost at an end....about that...you might want to have a look at the bottom of this post.....groan!  LOL!   This card came together quickly - I love the delish colours, brown has always been a favourite colour of mine.

The DP is from Basic Grey - who doesn't love their DP - I was torn as the reverse side is just as lovely.

The sentiment had been stamped off many months ago from a retired Stampin' Up set (thanks Ann)

The Seam Binding has been hand crinkled and had some Glimmer Mist added

The bling is part of another RAK - I am using it sparingly

and the divine rose is part of a RAK - I love the chunky glitter.

This card is for the following challenges:

and brought some friends with it.....to be scrapbooked...

It is a tough job but someone has to do it!  LOL!
