Vintage Mother's Day

I had so much fun making this card!  I've been seeing tons of vintage looking cards lately and just couldn't wait to try my hand at it.  It really helps when you have the right supplies.  I've used some lace and papers from Live and Love Crafts called "Alma's Sewing Room" and the owner, Sandy Mathis was amazing on helping me with my order.  What a fabulous place to buy from!!  I highly recommend it.

As you can see I've used tons of embellishments including the butterflies which I cut from some earlier Pion papers sent to me from Camilla. 

I even misted the image (which I downloaded from the internet) with biscotti Ranger's Perfect Pearls mist.  I can't believe you can actually see it!!

I covered the Tim Holtz bottle with Glossy Accents and then added some teeny sugar beads and silver microbeads.  That idea came from Tracy at Crafteezee, queen of vintage.  LOL!  Her stuff is amazing! 

And here you can see I added some tulle from Maya Road, sad they don't sell it anymore as it's so soft and easier to work with then the regular tulle.  I added a couple of self-adhesive pearls on the tulle as well. 

Used quite a number of Doohickey's, Wild Orchid flowers and the new Tim Holtz border die. 

Well I hope you enjoyed that one as much as I did!  I'm off to make another one!  Enjoy your week!

I'm always looking at your cards and you always WOW me! I know you live in Birmingham and being in the Metro Area, I would love for you to teach some classes. I would love to have the chance to learn some things from you.
