Gorgeous Vintage Lady

Hello friends, I have enjoyed a very quiet Saturday and am popping in to share a card created using Graphic 45 Couture Collection - I have had this image sitting in my stash for quite some time but now is the time to get it 'happening!'

The card front has been cut/embossed using the Spellbinders A2 Valiant Honor Card Creator Etched Dies and the Platinum Die Cutting Machine.  This has been popped up onto a pre-cut card base using Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L Crafty Foam Tape.

The image has been layered onto slightly larger black matting and popped up at an angle onto the card front also using Crafty Foam Tape. Co-ordinating Chipboard embellishments have been added, along with a double seam binding bow.

A Handmade Paper Clay corner has been coloured using Chameleon Pens and added to the top left corner of the image. Want2Scrap Turquoise Baby Bling has been added to the centre of the flowers.

This card is linked to the following challenges:
