MFW-Tuesday Trigger - A little romance

Good morning all! I have a card to share. Something I made that's so, vintage. So girly. So not me! LOL! This is my take on Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger: A Little Romance.

The inside:

Here's the inspiration picture:

Gorgeous, isn't it? Very Victorian and girly girly! I went shopping in my stash and came across this printed vellum from Webster's Pages. The lace was originally white, but I sponged Antique Linen distress ink on it - worked like a charm! I die cut two flowers from pink felt and cream card stock. I edged the card stock flower with rose chalk ink and glued pearls to the inside of both. The gray flower bud was cut from a sprig. The leaves were cut free hand then bent slightly for dimension. Shopping my stash again found me that cool pearl/rhinestone swirl. Score! Die cut and stamped the streamer, then adhered everything together. A bit more vellum, lace and stamping and the inside was done also!

Well, I guess it's time to get some more yard work done. We are finally getting some cooler weather. I had to put it on hold because of the Africa hot weather we've been getting. Thanks for stopping by and I hope you have an enjoyable day!

I can't wait to hear what awesome goodies you got!!
This is STUNNING! It's nice to change it up now & then (but don't get TOO used to this style, mmkay?)

adding pinterest script 3. Changing the Position of the Pin it! button The cool thing about this code is that you have some freedom over where the Pinterest button for Blogger will go over the image. Take a look at the code that you just copied and pasted into the HTML for the word 'center'.
